Here’s a real “salty” Partial Rohm (field ground) SS Dagger, straight out of the woodwork. If you’ve been looking for one of these Partial Ground Röhm SS daggers, but are on a tight budget, this is the one for you!

There are several chips in the grip, but the eagle and guards, as well as the SS roundel, are still in tact and show a very pleasing age patina consistent with the scabbard fittings. The nickel eagle shows some use wear around the edges of the wreath, legs and breast, but is still very proud and full of detail. The fit of the grip to the guards is exactly how we want, a nice and tight cut like the pieces of a puzzle. The early solid nickel guards appear to have never been cleaned, with build up on the top of the upper guard around the pommel nut.

The scabbard on this one is very pitted and silver in tone, with some rust spotting. A couple screws are missing from the scabbard fittings so my assumption is the vet attempted to refurbish it and in the process stripped what remained of the scabbard paint down to the metal. As you can see in the photos, the tip ball has suffered the same fate as so many other SS daggers; an ugly impact ding.

The blade is equally as distressed as the rest of this dagger, with quite a lot of spotting and surface oxidation. However, a Rohm SS dagger is a Rohm SS dagger, and they’re not getting any easier to come by. The field grinding to the “Ernst Röhm” signature engraving is nice and prominent, with only the portion of the dedication preceding his name completely saved, with 100% of that portion visible and legible. The maker’s mark, “Rich. Abr. Herder Solingen” is completely visible near the base of the blade, also saved from being ground away.

Though this example is not for every collector, she is priced to sell and still has a tremendous amount of “shelf appeal”, making it a very nice conversation piece if displayed.
