Superficially, this may look like a Voos-style etch found on army daggers.

But, several things, such as the maker, the eagle and lack of sprigs under wings, make this an etch to stay away from.

Always looking for Eickhorns and etched bayonets.

I agree! I am no etch pro but the mis-matched fittings of the hilt that have NOTHING to do with a Weyersburg blade would drive me away.. ugh! Kevin.


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