Kriegsmarine (Navy) Dagger by Eickhorn

SOLD!

Here we have a stunning example of an Eickhorn Kriegsmarine Navy Dagger with a blade that is absolutely breathtaking and a scabbard that is dent-free; something that is becoming more and more difficult to find with these navy daggers. Since I love the blade so much on this example, we’ll start there. Often times we see these daggers with the fouled anchor etch spattered with oxidation spotting, or loss of the gray toning due to cleaning, polishing or buffing of the blade…

Here we have a stunning example of an Eickhorn Kriegsmarine Navy Dagger with a blade that is absolutely breathtaking and a scabbard that is dent-free; something that is becoming more and more difficult to find with these navy daggers.

Since I love the blade so much on this example, we’ll start there. Often times we see these daggers with the fouled anchor etch spattered with oxidation spotting, or loss of the gray toning due to cleaning, polishing or buffing of the blade. Not here! We have a gorgeous etch on both sides with a very nice deep gray tone that just pops off the blade and commands your attention the moment it is removed from the scabbard! There are a few very minor blemishes otherwise, but nothing that can take away from the sheer quality and perfection of the etching. Near the grip we see the later Eickhorn maker’s mark and scabbard catch hook, which works as expected.

Moving up we have the cross guard, which has retained most of its factory detail and shows very little use wear. The gilded finish is still about 85%, which is more than most. You want to see some age and this one has the perfect amount; not too much, not too little. The ivory colored celluloid grip is near perfect, with only very minor blemishes (hardly worth noting). The brass wire wrap is nice and tight and has toned at the same pace as the rest of the dagger. The pommel shows the same level of gilding as the guard, with very little wear and much of the original factory detail still remaining.

The scabbard is in great condition, which is a rare treat. As mentioned, we see a lot of these soft metal scabbards with dings, dents and general abuse from being banged around during wear. Not the case with this one! We see the same overall tone in the scabbard as we do the dagger’s other metal parts, which is what we to see.

This nice of a German Navy Dagger is hard to come by these days, and isn’t going to last long, especially at this price.
