Title Eickhorn trench knife
Nationality German
Period c 1916
Price £375.00

This is a classic Eickhorn piece with the back-to-back squirrel trademark, which predates 1921 and is thus almost certainly a war time piece. It would have been a private purchase item and, indeed, there are many photographs showing officers wearing them in front line scenarios.

The hilt appears to be chequered ebony, but could possibly be stained beech wood. The scabbard retains a reasonable amount of the original paint finish, while the hilt has a somewhat worn and patinated look. The leather strap work is a little defective. The blade retains much of its original factory finish.
