Purchase: Railway Protection Leader Dagger [M1938] by Carl Eickhorn Solingen

Eickhorn Carl, Solingen

This Railway Protection Leader Dagger is in Mint condition. Model 1938. The total length is 40.2 cm. The Dagger has the maker mark on the blade: Carl Eickhorn Solingen. Dagger with rare Portepee.


Grip: Aluminum hilt fittings show minor surface wear with much frosting remaining to the spherical pommel with raised sunwheel swastika, ribbed ferrule and crossguard with winged railcar wheel Bahnschutz insignia on the obverse langet. The crossguard winged insignia has a casting flaw in the right wing as found on Eickhorn produced 2nd model Bahnschutz daggers. Black solid celluloid ridged grip is perfect.

Blade: The blade is also a MINT example. It is completely bright and with needle-like tip. It is interesting to note that the trademark is the seldom-seen, small, stamped-style of the 1935-41 hallmark. These stamped marks were done circa 1941, prior to the over-the-shoulder style adopted after this time. The mark depicts the squirrel holding a downward-pointing sword. Above the animal is the quality word, "Original", and below are the name and location, "Eickhorn/ Solingen" The original small leather blade washer is in place.

Scabbard: The scabbard is constructed of steel with a brushed finish with two dagger hanger loops with a ringed design an with attachment loops firmly secured to the upper end of the scabbard. The scabbard lip is tightly held in place by a single period original screw.
