Yup, Paul is correct, the maker is believed to be Ed Wusthof by virtue of their unique motto etch, maker mark style and usually plated aluminuim crossguards.

Can you make out the RZM code? From the poor etch quality and the high grip eagle, looks like it may be a Helbig. Are the crossguards magnetic? Do you have a straight-on shot of the grip, hard to...

Agreed, good dagger, but I believe the maker is Ed. Wusthoff, they were the only maker I've ever seen to use this very distinctive motto pattern.

Nice dagger, grip may be re-leathered, good looking piece. The logo is fine, just appears to be a mis-strike, the top half of the logo is very deep, while the bottom part of the knight's head and...

Nice dagger, what is interesting is the early deluxe type chain, with the 3-5 link configuration, also seen on the "field upgrade" versions.

Are the links magnetic (plated steel) or nickel based?

The subject dagger maker mark is not stamped, likely etched as already mentioned by Fred & Russ, possibly engraved given the layering of the serifs. The example shown by "collecting" is stamped.
