Just looking for objective analysis of the dagger here. Fine details to note: The placement of the motto (distance from crossguard), the general type of grip, the grip eagle, the rune button (looks fake?), the tang nut, and the crossguards don't appear to be Eickhorn accent grooves.

Keep in mind, this is a RZM 1940 production dagger...but it is Eickhorn marked. Now, I have seen 3 different RZM Eickhorns with shallow accent grooves on the crossguards with this maker which doesn't seem to fit the traditional look of Eickhorn crossguards.

The grip triangle at the lower crossguard looks huge, but again I have seen several RZM's with this style but I can't explain it because it's few and far between.

Please, any observations welcome. This was sold by a "reputable" dealer some time ago so I need to know who to trust in this game.

SS RZM dagger construction can be very objective I recently submitted pictures of an RZM example to three different trusted SS dagger authorities, two of whom are members of this forum....the Third is a noted and respected "authority" I revealed my "concerns" the two forum members didn't like.....outright the third saw little issue witht the dagger from the photo images. They examined the dagger in person and concurred conclusively with the other two....moral of the story hands on inspections almost always trump photos having said this I do not like the blade nor positioning of the motto I do not like the upper or lower cross guards I do not like the handle scabbard and adler could be okay IMO cheers and best, Ryan
