I picked this Eickhorn Army up last week. This is my first stamped Eickhorn army but this is also my first army with a "marbled" handle that I have. After talking with another forum member, I was told this has to do with the mix of the trolon before pouring the handle. Next to the glass handles, I think I like the looks of these best. This dagger has also had a lot of use as the upper scabbard band was almost worn through by the ring.

After waiting countless hours for Riches pics to open as he shoots them at an 8000 MB size,,,I have seen one of these types a long time ago and it looks like the same style. These are very rare to find. Almost as stylish as a Tiger stripe SA grip! Nice find!! Larry

Well, I don`t have a glass grip and I don`t collect later daggers but given the choice between a glass grip and that one & I would choose yours every time! very unusual and in super condition regardless of the wear. Obviously well cared for! Nice!
