EICKHORN HEER DAGGER
This Eickhorn Heer Dagger is a very high quality, early production example.
The blade is very nice, with original luster and only some small soft marks.
The reverse of the blade is nice etched with the second pattern Eickhorn manufacturer marking, which was used by this desirable maker from from 1935 to 41.
The handle on this dagger is extremely attractive, with a great Trylon grip that has toned to a desirable yellow/orange color.
The typical Eickhorn handle fittings are extremely well-preserved, and retain nearly all of the original burnishing. The crossguard has sharp detail, and all of the metalwork on the handle has deep, even toning that contrasts nicely with the pale tone of the grip.
This Eickhorn Heer Dagger is complete with its original scabbard. The scabbard retains most of the original finish, which shows even, typical wear and age. Only one side small screw is missing.
The scabbard bands have nice detail to the ornamentation, and the suspension rings are intact, with no issues.
This original German Army officer’s dagger has lots of visual appeal.
