Original Item: Carl Eickhorn Army Officer's Dagger The pommel of this dagger is in good condition, showing a little wear around the rim but nothing serious. The silver plating is mostly intact throughout this pommel. The standing oak leaves and acorns are crisply detailed and have good black backgrounds.
The crossguard retains its silver plating and has a fine patina. The details throughout the characteristic Carl Eickhorn eagle are exceptional throughout the head, breast and wing feathering, talons and wreathed mobile swastika. The grip is a very pretty, deep orange color, with a reverse grip that has toned to an even darker shade. This grip is in perfect condition throughout with the exception of a small chip at the top of the reverse side.
The scabbard is a fine Carl Eickhorn example, with much of the silver plating and some of the frosting along the edges. This straight scabbard has very crisp, finely grained panels. The carrying straps have an excellent pattern of overlapping oak leaves and acorns, with hand enhancing evident on each of the leaves. The throat is the thicker style and is held in place by a single flat head screw.
The very nice mint blade is bright throughout, having most of the original cross-grain. The needle-like tip is still intact. The reverse ricasso is etched with the 1935-41 Eickhorn trademark.
