This very rare dagger has a factory done Karl Ernst inscription done like the Rohm and Himmler inscription daggers. These daggers were given out like awards very similar to honor daggers. Very early piece being all nickel silver. This one has a nice grip with just one very small age crack on the reverse. The scabbard retains alomst all original lacquer. The scabbard has a very small ding to the scabbard ball which does not detract at all. The blade does unfortunatley show modeling to it, but it has never been cleaned. Execptionally rare and for the collector of rare SA daggers.
