A Model 1934 - Sturmabteilung Ehrendolch mit Widmung by Carl Eickhorn of Solingen. Ernst Rohm Honour Daggers were granted to members of the SS and SA who either had interrupted service since December 31,1931, or those who transferred from the Hitler Youth prior to that time. After the Night of the Long Knives, Röhm was declared a “traitor” and removal of the inscription was mandated. I really like this dagger… Beautiful matching patina, all Textbook Eickhorn characteristics and it is in very nice condition.
The blade on this one looks wonderful. The “In herzlicher kameradschaft Ernst Röhm” motto shows traces of the original inscription, yet was factory removed. The “Alles für Deutschland” motto and double oval “Carl Eickhorn Solingen” maker mark are dark, crisp and beautifully executed. The crossgrain looks wonderful as you shine it in the light. The fit is perfect, as is the tip. The blade rates an easy NM. It shows surface scratches throughout. The steel based brown anodized scabbard looks awesome. It shows the slightest oxidization spotting, yet remains completely dent free and retains 95%+ of its original factory lacquer. The solid nickel scabbard fittings look excellent. The ball is perfect and all four screws remain intact. The scabbard to crossguard fit is perfect. The solid nickel silver crossguards look excellent as well matching the scabbard fittings perfectly. The reverse of the lower crossguard is stamped “No” (Nordsee). The crossguard / grip fits are perfect! The brown grained hardwood grip is in wonderful shape! It has the odd surface scratch yet no chips, splits or flakes. 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. Really a very nice example that is sure to please..
