GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS DAGGER BY EICKHORN COMPLETE WITH RARE STRAPS AND KNOT.
This is a rare example by Eickhorn which are much harder to find than those by Alcoso, i probably see one Eickhorn to every 5 or 6 Alcosos. Fine detail to the eagle head hilt which still retains all silver finish, fine detail to the eagle crossguard with good clear swastika. Mint blade by Eickhorn Solingen and featuring there 1935 / 41 trade mark.The silver scabbard is the Eickhorn pattern and it is in perfect condition. Complete with correct Government officials hangers, silver brocade on blue backing with silver metal fittings, the portepee is the special type used on this model dagger, it is similar to an army portepee but the acorn is much small and the cord is slimmer. A really nice set by the premier maker Eickhorn, highly recommended.
