A Model 1934 - Sturmabteilung Ehrendolch mit Widmung by Carl Eickhorn of Solingen. This piece has been cleaned hard lightening the obverse inscription somewhat. Ernst Röhm Honor daggers were granted to members of the SS/NSKK/SA who either had uninterrupted service since December 31st 1931 or those who transferred from the Hitler Youth prior to December 31st 1931. After the Night of the Long Knives, Ernst Röhm was declared a “traitor” and removal of the inscription was mandated. The entire “In herzlicher kameradschaft Ernst Röhm” motto has been removed leaving a nice clear small oval maker mark 100% intact. The fit and tip are both perfect. The blade rates Exc. It age grey throughout and a "shadow" around the motto, perhaps someone masked it prior to cleaning? who knows? The whole exterior of this piece is matching in color, condition and patina. The steel anodized scabbard looks good. It retains the majority of its' finish. There some hits towards the upper fitting. Why, when or who again who knows? The solid nickel scabbard fittings look good showing normal period wear. The ball has taken a hit and all four screws remain intact. The solid nickel hilt fittings look good. The reverse of the lower crossguard is stamped “Fr”. The multi-toned hardwood grip has a wee hairline running north from the roundel. There are no other chips or cracks. The solid nickel eagle has excellent detail and a perfect fit. The SA roundel retains 99% of its enamel and also has a perfect fit.
