SS 1933 MODEL DAGGER WITH GROUND ROHM INSCRIPTION BY KLASS COMPLETE WITH VERTICAL HANGER.
This is a very nice and interesting example of a ground Rohm SS dagger. The black ebony grip is in very nice condition and it is inset with the silver eagle and SS runic badge. The hilt fittings are nickel silver and the lower crossguard is stamped with the SS distribution mark II, this is the hardest of the distribution marks to find. The blade displays the SS motto to the obverse side, the reverse side has been heavily ground by the SS man to remove the offending Rohm dedication, only the Klass trade mark still remains and it is the correct small pattern only seen on Rohm daggers, the original owner was obviously very keen to remove the Rohm inscription as the reverse side of the blade is heavily ground but it is amazing that the trade mark was not damaged at all as it is still totally complete. Black anodized scabbard with matching nickel silver fittings. Complete with black leather vertical frog hanger. A very nice SS dagger, although I have sold a number of Rohm SS daggers over the years I do not remember ever having one by Klass before although they are a recognized Rohm maker and are pictured in the SS book.[Condition: Exc++]
