I know many collectors turn thier noses up when it comes to RZM daggers BUT, this dagger has the quality of the early makers marked SS daggers.

Blade, is one of the BEST I have ever seen or handled! Needle tip 100% frosting 100% crossgrain, only has VERY faint runner marks. I don't dare place it back in the scabbard for fear of the runner marks.

The blade matches the rest of the dagger, uncleaned w/ heavy patina!

RZM or not, it is a great looking dagger that you should be proud of.

Yes Eric this is sweet. This mark, 121/34, and 120/34 are early quality. No one should thumb their noses at them for being RZM. Anyways I'm happy for you!

The 188/35 I had recently was as good a quality as the Eickhorn early one Ive got.With far fewer RZM ones made good RZM ones have got to be a sound investment and worth looking after to prevent unnecessary deterioration

Super dagger and not usually found with a blued scabbard. IMO, the 120/34's are the earliest of these nickel RZM's as they typically are district stamped "I". The other codes including the 121/34's usually have unstamped crossguards.

The 188/35 I had was stamped I on lower crossguard

188's are found both ways. Some are stamped "I".
