191SO1 -SS Full Rohm dedication Ehrendolch by Carl Eickhorn.

On April 12, 1934 another order was issued by the office of the Reichsfuhrer SS, that a certificate would be issued to all personnel awarded the Ehrendolch. On June 30, 1934 Adolf Hitler, as German Chancellor, authorized the execution of Ernest Rohm along with all other high ranking individuals he felt were a threat to his leadership. This purge is now commonly referred to as "The Night of the Long Knives". On July 4, 1934 Heinrich Himmler, as the new Reichsfuhrer SS replacing Ernest Rohm, ordered that the entire Rohm dedication be ground off the dagger of of all SS personnel in possession of the Ehrendolch.
