GERMAN 1938 PATTERN RAILWAY LEADERS DAGGER BY EICKHORN.
A very good example of a 2nd model Banschutze Railway leaders dagger.The black celluloid grip is in mint condition.The silver plated circular pommel displays the sunwheel swastika. The attractive and highly detailed silver crossguard features the winged wheel design, the crossguard has the flaw that all original Eickhorn examples will features.The blade is excellent condition and it features the Eickhorn 1935/41 pattern trademark.The scabbard is the silver aluminum type and it is the late style with the turned in throat which does not require a separate top fitting. A good example showing light age and wear but at a very reasonable price for such a scarce dagger. [Condition: Exc++]
