A Model 1934 SS Ground Röhm Honor Dagger (Schutzstaffel Ehrendolch) by Robert Klaas of Solingen. E. Röhm honor daggers were granted to members of the SS/SA who either had interrupted 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. The blade on this one looks excellent! The acid etched “Meine Ehere Heißt Treue” motto is beautifully executed! The “In herzlicher freundshaft, Ernst Röhm” inscription and maker mark have been completely removed. The crossgrain looks awesome against the light. The tip comes to a perfect point and the fit is perfect as well. The blade rates an easy Exc++. It shows the common age grey and surface scratches throughout. The scabbard is steel based and black anodized. It shows some surface scratches were it has likely been cleaned up. The solid nickel-silver scalloped scabbard fittings are in excellent condition and have beautifully patinaed with time. The ball remains perfectly round and all four screws remain intact! The scabbard to crossguard fit is perfect! The solid nickel-silver scabbard fittings look great. The reverse of the lower crossguard is stamped “I” (Munich) and is on its side which is a great indicator this use to be Klaas. The black hardwood grip shows several pressure marks throughout. The reverse shows two hairline cracks to the back. The solid nickel silver eagle retains beautiful detail and has a perfect fit. The SS runes retains 80%+ of its enamel and has perfect fit. A desired maker, a desired piece.
