in short hes kidding you on my friend its a sloppy reproduction to me! sorry!
just compare the motto eagle , marking to fine originals yours in nothing like it imho
Ah, too bad. Thanks anyway though!
do wait for more opinions, more opinions are always good!
Compare it with other SS daggers...
No Ronin like Ewan says it's a poor fake, leather buffer pad to blade ...no no... bad blade etch, and everything really total fake sorry matey,
Just look at the grip eagle-how it's inset into the grip, for one. Is that grip even Wood? it almost looks like extruded plastic. I agree...a definitely Not good piece.

South America fake? I believe they use that rzm code on their fakes, which wasn't even used for SS daggers, but instead for SA daggers.

Welcome to the forum . Mr. Reronin..the dagger is as fake as the story you were given and as fake as numerous Adolf Hitler signatures floating about. At first look the grip says everything as Chinese junk worth $30. The grip is plastic unlike wood originals,, compare your squared off 45 degree eagle wings slant cut to the rounded feathered edges of this Eickhorn example.
The story you were given has been heard over and over and in the end its the dagger that proves the story wrong. I hope you did not pay much for it. Our collectors eyes are sharp here in more ways than one
Below is a pic of the correct eagle style. Regards Larry

Larry, was M7/36 rzm code even used for the ss dagger? Thanks
