This is a very nice partially ground Ernst Röhm SS dagger by maker Gottlieb Hammesfahr. This WW2 SS German Dagger has been stored away since the war, only to be uncovered in the vet’s steamer trunk by his son who inherited his father’s military service items.
The blade is in better condition than many of the daggers I come across, with about 20% surface corrosion, but nothing severe enough to detract from the piece overall, and thankfully has not damaged the inscription. The inscription is deep and crisp, with Ernst Röhm’s full name being the only part of the inscription to have been filed off. There are obvious file marks between what remains of the inscription, and the maker’s mark, but the maker’s mark was not affected and is still 100%. The filing did leave two notable remnants of Röhm’s signature visible; a portion of the horizontal line above his last name, and the bottom tip of the “m” in his last name.
The grip and cross guard fit is nearly perfect, and the wood of the SS Dagger’s grip has retained all of its deep black color, with only minor scratches to note, and no chips or cracks whatsoever.
The nickel plated fittings and eagle all match in color and tone, with the absence of a good cleaning being the only thing standing in the way of them looking flawless.
The scabbard has lost much of its deep black factory anodizing (about 25% remains), revealing a brownish underl ying tint. The nickel fitting at the tip of the scabbard does have a couple small dents, and the ball shows slight impacting, which is very common with these daggers.
