WW2 German SA Full Röhm Dagger Maker Ernst Pack & Sohn
The blade has the full Röhm signature and the acid etched “Alles für Deutschland” motto and “E. P. & S. Solingen” maker mark are both dark, crisp and beautifully executed! The blade crossgrain is easily visible all the way from the hilt to the tip and blade is in good condition wit some runner marks and fit remains nice and tight in the Scabbard. Overall nice dagger that shows service use and wear and Full Röhm daggers are getting very hard to find these days.
The Rohm Dagger in 1934 he distributed approximately 100,000 SA daggers with his personal inscription on the reverse blade. These daggers were to honor individuals who had served with the SA prior to December, 1931. Other than the inscription, these pieces were identical to the standard M1933 SA dagger. After the Röhm purge, the inscription was ordered to be removed, and failure to comply would be considered treason. Some were simply ground in the field by whatever means were available Examples will occasionally be encountered with remnants of the original inscription remaining on the blade, but mostly none will remain. Some blades exist with an intact inscription, exhibiting only the removal of the Röhm signature. Very, very rarely is an example seen with a full, untouched inscription, as the holder would have surely risked a charge of treason.
