Hello Blondin, in general the pics are few and not detailed for me to judge all parts of this dagger (what is the golden hue on the eagle´s left wing? Is it only in the photos?) but at least the trademark seems to be NO legit mark used during 33-45. It obviously should resemble the late EICKHORN trademark but has (big) differences.
Regards,

I agree with Wotan.. not a trademark that I recognize nor like on this.

That alone would keep me from buying it.

good evening
Thank you for your view that I share.
The yellow is due I think to light d\' a lamp.
This dagger is on sale as true for 700€, and I try to prove what is wrong.
Sorry for my very bad English.

From these small and not detailed pics it is hard for me to do any judgement. But the dagger parts (except the blade) seem to be late generic parts. The grip could be of "milkstone" but I am not sure.

Hello Thank you for this analysis, the person to finally understand that this piece was very questionable.

HHMMM.... not a combination I like but could it be a possible very late combination? Pack resorted to using these type A generics late, could Eickhorn have done the same?? Maker mark is strange indeed.. hard to tell unless I could see it in hand and even then there would be no guarantees! Kevin.


It's ALL in the DETAILS!!.......

Now, I have seen a late war version of the Eick TM without the writing (with squirrel only) on a Kriegsmarine dagger.

Here it is. Note that the squirrel shape is different (the ears in particular) and the orientation of the head to crossguard is wrong.
