Hi Guys. This was in my Dad's collection and he passed. Man is there a lot of conflicting information out there! Hopefully I can get some conclusive information so I can make a decision about possibly selling. Hopefully my pictures are of the appropriate areas to assist in evaluation. Thanks in advance!

Jeff

I would not buy it.

- The grip does not fit correctly and is not the shape of an early Eickhorn grip

- The guards are not early Eickhorn guards

- The trademark is too far up the blade

- The scabbard is painted.

Sorry, but it looks like a parts assortment.

I agree with Dave, it’s a put together piece at best.

That dagger may be a parts piece, but he number 53102 has been identified by Ross Kelbaugh.

Not even close to being real...just one detail is all it takes on these highly sought after Rohm SS daggers ...especially this one supposed to be an Eickhorn ...the cross guards are not Eickhorn produced.
The accent grooves are very shallow which explains the poor grip fit.

Regards Larry
