Title 1933 pattern Army officer's dagger
Nationality German
Period c 1933-40

This nice example of an early Eickhorn dagger has heavy quality silver-plate finish to the hilt mounts and scabbard. The scabbard has a few small dents and the grip is a magnificent orange colour. This was the classic dagger which all German army officers wore until c 1943, when pistols replaced them (due to partisan action in occupied territory).

The blade is virtually mint, with all its original polishing marks, and has the early Eickhorn mark (1933-34) etched on the forte. The straps are brass-mounted with remains of silver finish. However, the silver braid has obviously had a hard life and has minor traces of gold paint. There is some loss of silver finish at the edge of the pommel.

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
