I have been badgering someone I know to part with the most lovely Eickhorn full rohm with a lovely "blondie" grip. I have seen it and handled it and it is 100% I dont have any pics though.

It is really nice and all as it should be with a lovely Patina. It is one of those things you just want to buy even if you end up paying top dollar for it.

Anyhows what is a nice full rohm Eickhorn worth? If I can get it I will post some pictures of it.

I didn't think an SS would have blonde grip.

An Eickhorn Rhm SA with a "blonde" grip??? That sounds most unusual to me...

Is it a large or a small makersmark and which one?

Is there a benchmark?

I can only suggest to post pictures before spending this amound of dollars.

Best greetings,

Herman

I know these pictures are not the best as I took them on my camera phone. The blade has remains of what looks like old grease on it.

On the tang it has the number 5 on it and a latin or roman numeral V in a circle.

I am paying for this tonight so quick input appreciated.

My Pack ground Rohm has a plain tang and the trademark is positioned 15 mm from the lower crossguard the dagger you show looks to have the trademark farther away from the crossguard
Is the hammerhead solid or void theres a good thread started by Houston Coates on Pack trademarks on Rohm daggers on this forum
Be careful I would hold off buying it until some of our Rohm experts have chimed in

My EP&S Rohm wont come apart (dont think it ever has been !! but agree with AJ on the
maker mark at 15mm from lower crossguard.
This is a favorite maker seemingly for the
spurious etch.Sharper pic please will be to your benefit. Wink

mongobongo,

Are you certain that the grip is a 'blondie' or simply over cleaned/scrubbed?

Respectfully,

John

Here are some better pics, I have it on approval for seven days to satisfy myself it is correct. The makers mark is 14MM from the crossguard.

The dedication, moto and makers mark all have the same burnishing. The pictures dont really pick it up because of the light but I can take some more if needed.

Well, It's hard with images to really make an opinion. On this blade, I would have to examine it more closely before making a decision, if you get my drift.

The grip looks typical Pack light brown
and fittings same.Got my upper guard off with same caster marking.Can,t get the rest off
and wont try.But the clincher is the etch.
Like Gailen says,I think you should try
pics square on to the etch and Pack mark
for a better appreciation.Sorry to bug you but
would be worth it for broader opinion.JMO.
