Purchase: Documents, Awards, Navy Officer Dagger [M1938] by Carl Eickhorn Solingen

Eickhorn Carl, Solingen

This Eickhorn 2nd Model Naval Dagger is a textbook example with a highest quality hilt and scabbard. Kriegsmarine model 1938. The maker mark is by Carl Eickhorn Solingen. Overall is a great example.


Grip: The off-white celluloid over wood grip is in perfect condition throughout. It is tightly wrapped with twisted brass wire. The wire has trapped a lot of residue in the recesses, giving a good look to the piece. The crossguard has fouled anchor center blocks with good acanthus leaves on the quillon arms. The button ends are accented and have crisp center nipples.

Blade: The double etched blade of this dagger is in extremely choice, near mint condition. It is completely mirror-bright with a fine, needle-like tip. The fouled anchor motif really jumps off the blade. The reverse ricasso of the blade is stamped with the “Over the Shoulder” Eickhorn Squirrel trademark first used in 1941, and the original brown felt blade buffer is in place.

Scabbard: The lightning bolt scabbard is also in fine condition. The carrying bands are decorated with outstanding overlapping oak leaves and acorns. The eyelets have the typical triple serrations that show only modest wear. The lower area of the scabbard, with its ermine feet, acanthus leaves and lightning bolts.
