A great looking “Lazy Man’s” Partial Röhm SA Dagger by Anton Wingen Jr! The blade on this one is one looks great! The acid etched partial “In herzlicher kameradschaft (Ernst Röhm)” motto remains nice, dark and crisp! 15% of Ernst Röhm’s name remains visible. The removal of the name was a back yard job being scratched off. I just picture the guys coming home from their weekly SA meeting to a bratwurst and Beck's beer discussing the events of the Night of the Long Knives, and complaining about why they had to remove the name from the blade. The acid etched “Alles für Deutschland” motto and “Anton Wingen Jr Solingen” maker mark are both beautifully executed! The majority of the crossgrain remains visible throughout. The fit and tip are both perfect as well! The blade rates an Exc+/Exc++. The tip has a slight bend to it and it shows age grey / surface scratches throughout. The steel based, brown anodized scabbard looks great! It shows some oxidization spotting throughout and if you hold it just right in the light you can see two miniscule pressure marks. The solid nickel scabbard fittings look good. The ball has a few bruises and a 2mm split. All four screws remain intact. The solid nickel-silver scabbard fittings look excellent matching the scabbard fittings in color and patina. The scabbard to crossguard fit is near perfect. The reverse of the lower crossguard is also stamped “He” (Hessen). The brown hardwood grip looks great. I can see one hairline crack and the common pressure marks but that’s it! No flakes or chips. It was painted black in the period. The solid nickel-silver eagle looks great and it has perfect fit. The SA roundel also has a perfect fit and retains 99%+ of its enamel. A great opportunity to get yourself a partial Röhm SA Dagger!
