Real blade with completely fake inscription, nothing correct about it.

I'm not even sure about it... Trade mark is (IMHO) laser etched.

Mark is right: this is not a correct Eickhorn maker mark, this blade is 100% fabrication.

Lose blades are in 95% of the cases problematic and that is why they end up removed from their dagger.

Best regards,

Tang Marking "A5" is Ernst Pack ...may have been a left over blade blank.

Curious of the billet clamp marks on side of tang

I believe this is a genuine blade, fakes typically don't have the raised foundry/forge markings, and this particular foundry mark is known to be period. Obviously the Rohm inscription and maker mark are fake and poorly executed, I imagine the SA motto on the reverse is correct and period, however not Eickhorn.

The M/O for some forgers is to take a period blade, grind the reverse clean and re-etch mottos and maker marks which are seldom even close to correct. SS fake blades often started out as SA blades, both sides ground and replaced with new mottos and maker marks. This is partly why you never encounter "correct" crossgrain polishing on the forgeries as it is difficult to replicate accurately.
