Purchase: Army Officer’s Dagger with Hangers by Carl Eickhorn Solingen

Eickhorn Carl, Solingen

This Army Officer's Dagger is in EXC++ condition with Hangers and Portepee. Model 1935. The total length is 40.0 cm. The Dagger has the maker mark on the blade: Carl Eickhorn Solingen. This dagger has a completely black patina across all of the surfaces except in areas where there is still a frosted finish that shows through.


Grip: The grip of this dagger is a very pleasing deep orange color and remains in perfect condition. The pommel shows minor traces of carrying time on the upper end, but still has frosting around the edges. The 12 standing oak leaves are in excellent condition, all having hand enhancement. The ferrule and crossguard eagle are the 1st Style. The eagle has quite a bit of frosting clinging to the recessed areas as well as the upper arms of the guards. It shows virtually no wear and retains full, crisp detailing throughout.

Blade: The blade is also a choice example. It is completely bright and retains 100% cross grain 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 straight as an arrow, being the 2nd Style. It retains its crisp pebbled panel design. There are frosted remains in the protected areas around the carrying bands. The bands are very fine with each overlapping oak leaf reflecting hand-enhancing. The thick-style throat is retained by a single screw in the reverse center.
