I really hope this dagger will surface one day. But he was probably destroyed after the Röhm purge...
No one that knows more...?

No one knows anything beyond a few sets of photos. The scabbard appears longer than any SA/SS dagger and the hanger is unique. I'd bet the blade was Damascus steel.

Probably used as a yard knife by some vet from Jersey City or Toledo or Allentown.

As I reading somewhere, it was said that Goering removed it when he was arrested and took it with him.
