Description

Outstanding blade that is UNDER represented by the photos!  Early SA dagger with nickeled fittings and group marked cross guard "Wm" for SA Group Westmark. The piece does not appear to have been cleaned or polished in the recent past, as the metal fittings show a good amount of patina. The wooden grip features the correct inlaid eagle and SA rune; the wood shows some scratches, primarily to the reverse.  The blade is an early Eickhorn example that appears to have been sharpened at some point in the past, and the reverse shows that it's been ground, most obviously over the Eickhorn trademark. The scabbard has a rust patina and appears to have a decent amount of the factory browning present. The bottom scabbard fitting has some denting along the edge which may have occurred while the dagger was worn during the SA military games/exercises. Not a mint example but complete and definite one-time Röhm dagger.
