I inherited my collection of WW2 memorabilia about 5 years ago (some items earlier) from my grandfather. Each piece was directly brought back to the U.S. by my grandfather at the end of the war.

One of the edged weapons that he brought back was an SA Rohm dagger (made by Eickhorn). I just started learning about the history of this knife over the past week (from posting it on another site, google-searches, etc.). I knew that this knife was somewhat special because my grandfather told me (before he died) that Rohm was executed. What I didn't know until a few days ago, and what I'm pretty sure my grandfather never knew, is the information about the grinding of the inscription.

Anyway, I've kept it in pretty good condition over the years. Knowing what I know now, I wish I would have oiled it and treated it more like a diamond years ago (as I will from now on). Enjoy the pictures and let me know what you think.

Can't see any pictures as of yet.

If it is indeed a real one then there is quite a lot of money in these. Depending of course on quality.

Hoping to see some pictures soon grin

I can see the pictures just fine--not sure why they're not showing up for you. Can anyone else see them? If not, can someone help me post pictures on this site? I hit the insert picture button and used http links to my pitures. Is there a way to directly upload pictures from my computer?

Thanks Vern! I'll try to add more later, if I can shrink them down to size.

To be fai the motto looks laser etched - unless this is just the photo. The blade does not fit to the crosguard to well.

It looks like the genuine article to me.I will give you another tip .Don't ever clean or polish the blade or the fittings.Is the dagger black?
