German Forestry Cutlass Third Reich Knife by Carl Eickhorn

This Senior Foresters Cutlass by Eickhorn is in EXC+ condition throughout. The total length is 45.5 cm. The Cutlass has the maker mark on the blade: Carl Eickhorn Solingen, along the spine of the blade is the distributors mark W.MICHOVIUS COTTBUS.


Grip: The hilt is an aluminum base which is covered nicely with gilt. The hilt features a “D” guard which has a lower quillon ending in the shape of a deer’s hoof. The clamshell below features a quillon end at the left that rises upward into a teardrop shape and at the lower the clamshell ends with a quillon which is parallel to the clamshell. The grip plates are simply fine. They have outstanding grains in both sides and have turned a fine golden color.

Blade: The slab sided blade of this cutlass is 33.3 cm in length. This blade having triple etching. The etch on the front of the blade depicts a hunting scene with a hunter taking aim at a buck and dog who are running through the woods. On the reverse is a different hunting scene with a hunter and his dogs taking on a big boar. Along the spine of the blade is the distributors mark W.MICHOVIUS COTTBUS, Cottbus being the only known distributor of Eickhorn Forestry daggers. Their makers mark can be seen on the reverse of the blade on the ricasso where a stamped squirrel holding a sword can be seen.

Scabbard: The scabbard shell is black leather. This leather features the twin decorative lines which run the length of the edges on both sides. The mounts are a brass variety. The upper mount features a fine acorn with checkered cap. The edge is scalloped where it meets the scabbard shell. The same is true of the lower mount and it has two sets of twin decorative lines that tend to tie in with the motif of the ferrule. The gilding throughout these brass mounts is still all there. The scabbard mounts are retained by staples in the usual manner.
