Here are 5 Eickhorn R�hm daggers side by side: only 2 of them bear the same makersmark but still are different...

Best greetings,

Herman

Herrman:

Love 'em. Can we get closeups of the TMs? With less obscured by the watermark wink

Hi Herman can you reduce the watermark a bit it makes objective study of the daggers almost impossible

Thanks for the comments, guys.

I will show the makersmarks in separate photos, because showing them all 5 on one picture is a real challenge even without the "watermark":

This is what you should have seen (from left to right):

- large smouth tail
- small smouth tail (of a partial R�hm SS)
- early C.E. (only found on "christmas" SA r�hm daggers)
- small serrated tail
- small smouth tail (on a ground R�hm SA)

Best greetings,

Herman

Herman,
I can't blame you for 'guarding' the Eickhorn logo on the Christmas dagger. smile A Fantastic dagger. shocked

I recall several years ago someone here pulled out a Christmas dagger out of e-Ban with a copper scabbard and showed it here.
Which eagle does this one have? Nailed, or not? With 'halo', or without?

Thanks for showing.

Thank you, guys, for the kind words!

Serge, I don't believe this early eagle is nailed into the grip, but I cannot tell for sure: I never disamble my daggers.

Best regards,

Herman
