Hi everyone,

I posted this one on a local forum and they were critical about the pommel and the scabbard. one had less detail and the other looked too new! As far as I can see it's a textbook late Eickhorn...

Hello Wim, so you obviously have a late but not the latest varation of EICKHORN navies. The latest ones would have the same mmark but a steel scabbard (with brass finish) with pressed out scabbard bands and pot metal (again with brass finish) grip parts.
I am not into the minute details of navy eagle varations (eg. late EICKHORNs sometimes do have WKC grip parts) but I can see nothing wrong with your dagger. Imho a nice conditioned, late period EICKHORN navy.

BTW these are eg. three unissued SA by the same maker, tagged and bagged. These are really unissued, NOT somehow nice looking daggers with few waering traces and a tag and a bag nowadays added(!).
So mint pieces are around, any "item is to new looking" argument is ... grin

Regards,
