BladesOther BladesWW2 German 2nd Pattern Kriegsmarine Officer's Dress Dagger
Original WW2 German 2nd pattern Kreigsmarine dress dagger by Carl Eickhorn, The acid etched fouled blade is in great condition and has fantastic detail. The maker mark is nicely stamped at the top, and reads ( Original Eickhorn Solingen ) The blade tip comes to a nice sharp point.
I have been told the blade on this has been shortened slightly at some point, for what reason I have no idear why, but a good job has been made of it (see photos)
There is a crack at the top of the handle, apparently these handles was prone to cracking.
The brass double twisted wire wrap remains tightly intact on the handle.
The scabbard is in very good condition with nice detail but but it does show some wear from being used, It has a few small dents to the lower end. I read that these dents used to happen when walking through a door way and the lower part of the scabbard getting caught in a door when shutting.
There is also slight bend in the scabbard is self (I have not tried to bend it back) It could probably do with being heated up. The dagger release button still works well and as it should.
