Very nice second pattern Luftwaffe Dagger with original sheath by Carl Eickhorn. Eickhorn daggers are always more desirable due to the quality behind the name. This piece is no exception with the traditional heart shaped pommel, and tangerine-orange color grip. Aside from the hairline crazing marks you’ll find on most any period dagger grip, this dagger has retained much of its original detail, and a clean, near perfect blade to match!
A very nice Veteran acquired World War II Luftwaffe Dagger by Alcoso. Pommel cap and cross guard are in very nice condition, with only very modest wear. The grip shows only very minor nicks, but no cracks or notable chips and is otherwise solid. The scabbard and ferrule show an honest amount of surface rust, and sadly the scabbard has a decent size dent between the hanger rings. As for the blade, it shows a good deal of discoloration that may simply be dried casmoline. It is completely uncleaned so there is no way to tell without making an attempt at cleaning the blade. The hangers set is in great shape, with average wear to the metal fittings, and no notable stitching or fabric issues.
