~ German WW2 Feuerwehr Dagger by Carl Eickhorn Solingen ~
Under the regime of the Third Reich, civilian organizations, such as the fire department and police had a para-military nature. They were often seen as an extension of the Nazi party. As such, they were also issued blades such as the one featured here. Dress bayonets were issued to personnel to be worn at parades and special events. these items were built identical to their daily use counterpart but the blade is chromed and they did not have a working mechanism to attach to the lugnut. in some cases they did not even have the groove to attach to a 98K rifle.
Fireman’s Bayonet has very fine nickel plating on the eagle
~ Condition ~
This Dagger is in excellent condition with a small amount of pitting to the end of the cross guard, the grips are perfect as is the blade.
The Scabbard is a perfect fit but has lost some of the paint surface, the frog is intact but has hardened and there are a few cracks but is nice and original as is the whole ensemble. Please see the pictures as they form part of our condition report.
~ Postage ~
UK postage is £15, international at cost or it can be inspected in our shop.
