    Default SS dagger RZM M7/36 real or replica?

    Hello, I just aquired this dagger from someone who said he had received it from a German officer during WWII, and I was wondering whether it was real or a replica.
    I'm only worried about the hilt being something other than wood. But I've seen some pictures of genuine works with handles that do not look like wood either, hence the doubt.

    If it were real, any idea how much it'd be worth?

    Thanks in advance.

    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
