    Hi Yorksman...The SS producers all used their own templates when applying the etch to the blade,,and yes you are correct as they do have subtle differences. From fat to thin,,to the slight style in the script if one takes notice of certain letters. These differences helps the collector readily identify the maker by their style. A keen eye and comparison will make it quick for the SS collector to know the maker by memory. SA producers are the same way also. regards Larry

    Thanks Larry, do you have any SS daggers with different fonts in your own collection ?? as you know people have different opinions on German items. So I take it not only RZM where making the SS blades with all the same font style?? Thanks

    Hi Yorksman,, here are 3 Tom Wittmann examples of early SS motto types. #1 is Boker..#2-3 is Rzm120/34...#4 is Robert Klaas. You can see the differences in height, width and script style. If these mottos are seen in hand,,then much more can be seen in minute detail. Photos are ok,,but in hand is the best view.
    What are your thoughts on "different opinions" that others may have on German items.
    Regards Larry

    I guess I'm not reading this right, but RZM was not an actual company that made daggers, but was simply a code system for the makers to use rather than etch their logos onto the blades. There was, of course, many different companies that made these daggers, and as Larry has said, there are, naturally, any number of small differences in the fonts they used. There was no "Master Stencil" or anything that was sent to each of the manufacturers to use-they made their own. As far as this particular dagger goes, as has also been said, it is a good authentic piece who's grip eagle may have loosened and been replaced during or perhaps even after the war. Not an uncommon occurrence.

    I will also add that your font is a know original on unmarked blades.
