RAD Leader´s Dagger [M1937] with Hanger by Carl Eickhorn Solingen

This RAD Officer's Dagger by Eickhorn is in MINT condition. Model 1937 for Leader. The total length is 40.0 cm. The Hewer has the maker mark on the blade: Carl Eickhorn, Solingen.


Grip: The hilt plating throughout the noble eagle’s head is all there and also is complete. The pommel has the usual outstanding detail to the eagle’s nasal area, beak, brow and eye. The ferrule has the decorative lines running on forty-five degree angles on the ferrule, each having its original factory darkening in the backgrounds. The crossguard features quillon arms that curl to a swirl at the quillons. The obverse features a spade which is lined and has a superimposed swastika placed between two wheat shafts. The grip plates are a very pleasing off-white color and both remain in 100% condition.

Blade: The blade is a very fine matte finished example being in near mint condition. This blade is still crisp throughout the spine and has a good fuller on both sides. The RAD motto “Arbeit adelt” is in crisp condition with 100% of the background darkening. The reverse ricasso is matching etched with the logo used from 1935 through 1941. It consists of an etched squirrel holding a downward pointing sword. Above the squirrel is the word “Original”, and below is the firm’s name and location, “Eickhorn Solingen”.

Scabbard: The scabbard has a good crisp pebble pattern on both sides. The scabbard features the curl designs on the upper portion and below the curls are two touching wheat shafts, on reverse with dedication "Gäde". The lower chape portion duplicates the look with the touching wheat shafts. The throat is retained by two flatter head side screws (one screw lost).
