Naval Dagger by Carl Eickhorn

This is an early period piece that retains the high quality workmanship and high grade materials in its usage. The gilding on the crossguard and pommel are still in excellent condition and show only slight signs of wear although the crossguard does show scratches and contact wear. The grip is an off-white color and is the celluloid-over-wood style that is tightly wrapped with twisted brass wire. The grip shows some slight scratch marks and shows signs of some discoloration. The crossguard is a perfect match to the look of the pommel. The blade release button is of the notched aperture type and works perfectly. The blade is very fine quality manufactured, is nickel plated, and is bright throughout. There are very minor smudges and contact marks from the withdrawal and replacing of the blade into its scabbard to both the obverse and reverse sides. It is the familiar Eickhorn double-etched, fouled anchor pattern. Overall, blade in near mint condition. The back grounding to the grey panels is still very visible however, it slightly scratched on one side. The edges are crisp and the tip has still retained its sharpness. The reverse ricasso is stamped with the Eickhorn over the shoulder Squirrel trademark and below is the company location, Solingen. The dagger does not come with the original washer. As per most Eickhorn examples the scabbard is the lightning bolt variety the shell is dented on both sides towards the bottom of the scabbard and displays age damage to the gilding. The bands show a detailed mix of acorns and oak leaves with the eyelets having triple serrated surfaces. The scabbard throat is retained by two dome head, brass side screws, which appear unturned. Overall, grade as nearly extremely fine condition.
