SA DAGGER 1933 MODEL WITH FULL ROHM INSCRIPTION BY EICKHORN.
This is a superb personalized SA Rohm honour dagger with a complete inscription and with some interesting features and it is certainly one of the nicest examples I have owned. All early nickel silver fittings, the lower crossguard is marked with bench number 4, there is no SA group mark and this is occasionally seen with Rohm daggers, it is believed that daggers with out a group mark were personally presented by Rohm and not by the SA groups and were probably presented to his Staff members and to personal acquaintances and friends. The brown wooden grip is also very interesting, it is inset with the SA insignia and silver eagle and at the very bottom of the grip it has been finely carved with a small shield with a design to the centre, probably a family coat of arms or the owners initials, but after 86 years it is difficult to make out now, the only other person I know that featured insignia in this position on his SA dagger was Rohm so this really is an extraordinary feature to see. The blade is in beautiful near mint condition, the obverse side features the SA motto and the reverse side the complete Rohm inscription and it also features the small Eickhorn double oval trade mark 1933/35 patten but this example features the squirrel with the smooth tale which is rarer than the serrated tale type, but both are seen on Rohm daggers. Brown anodized scabbard is in superb condition with much factory finish remaining, the scabbard is fitted with nickel silver mounts and the lower mount has a small dent to the base of the ball which most do. Complete with short brown leather hanger with correct early type metal clip. This really is an exceptional example, expensive but I doubt if you will find a better or more interesting example and it is close to near mint condition and so if you want the best this is probably it.

As most collector know approximately 100,000 SA Rohm dagger were awarded in 1934, shortly after Rohm was declared a traitor and executed, an order was then sent out to the various SA groups ordering the members to destroy or at least remove the Rohm inscription from the blade, most complied but a few opted to remove just the name from the blade. A good example at a very reasonable price [Condition: Exc++]
