Third Reich second model Kriegsmarine dagger by Eickhorn, 10 in. blade, 16.25 in. overall, with a white celluloid-covered wood grip, wrapped with tightly-bound braided brass wire. The pommel is in the shape of a national eagle with half-folded wings, clutching a wreath-encircled swastika. The crossguard depicts a fouled anchor at the center, with ribbed designs on the quillions. Both mountings are brass. The pommel and cross guard are in very good condition, save for some minor scuffs and one slight crack to the celluloid. The nickel-plated blade is etched on both sides with designs, again incorporating fouled anchors between acanthus leaves, though is not as crisp as usually seen upon inspection under magnification. The blade bears only scattered bits of surface corrosion, and the blade's tip is slightly bent, only visible upon close inspection. The felt washer at the tang is intact and remains supple. The scabbard is brass, with lightning-bolt motifs and two hanging rings with bands bearing a pattern of oak leaves. The scabbard is straight with two dents towards the top. The dagger fits effortlessly into the scabbard, though the catch is broken and thus the dagger will not lock into place. Just good condition, estimated accordingly. Sold as is.
