I was sure that I had started a thread on Eickhorn pattern etches, but I can`t find it here at all.

So, I will start with this latest SOS find, a scarce double etched short bayonet with the 3222 Panzer etch on the obverse and a dedication to Panzer Unit 24 on the reverse.

A Panzer dedication is the Holy Grail for etched bayo collectors like me.

The above bayonet completes what I call my Panzer trifecta.

I now have a short, stag gripped single etched 3222, a short double etched stag gripped 3222-Panzer Abwehr Abteilung 5 and a short double etched 3222- Panzer Abteilung 24.

Here are pics of the three.

The 3219 etch by Eickhorn is the most commonly found of their etch patterns.

This one is a long double etched version. The 3219 double Wehrmacht eagle on one side and a dedication to Nachrichten Abt 25 on the other.

This is also a long double etch Eickhorn. It has the 3219 etch on one side and a dedication to Pionier Bat 15 on the other. Note that this reverse etch is slightly different than the one in the previous post... it has a one line dedication and additional border lines.

An interesting variation on the previous post is this long double etched with the 3219 pattern on one side and a dedication to the same Pionier unit, but to its Company 2. This is a 2 line etch without the second set of borders.

It also has a distributor mark to J. Hommel.

Here is another etch that is pretty hard to find.

It is a short double etch bayonet with the 3219 etch on one side and the rare Gebirg Pionier 54 etch on the other. Mountain troops and Pionier troop etch are difficult to find on their own... the combination of the two made my day when I found this.

John,it's a pleasure to see yours bayonets,just perfect.
I have never seen or heard about the Bicycle unit and those blued and orange colored are gems.
What other colors they used ?

The Eickhorn 3220 etch pattern has the crossed rifles near the tip and the Wehrmacht eagle near the crossguard. It is the second most commonly found etch pattern on Eickhrn marked bayonets.

This is a short bayonet, double etched with the 3220 etch on one side and a dedication to Infantry Regiment 32 as a one line with double borders.

This is also a long double etched version with the 3220 etch on one side and the two line one border etch to Infantry Regt 24 on the other.

The Eickhorn catalogue shows the etch pattern 3232 with the Luft eagle close to the tip and the Flak gun close to the grip.

I do not have that, but do have a variation on that pattern where the flak gun is close to the tip and a Wehrmacht eagle is close to the grip.

A pattern not found in the Eick Catalog and a walk in to the 2011 MAX show, this is a short, stag gripped pommel etched bayonet. It has a variant pommel etch that uses the Luft gulls instead of the Luft eagle.

Here is my last Eickhorn etched bayonet, a presentation piece.

Etched only on one side, this has been discussed in a previous thread on this forum.

That's it for my Eick etches... if you look in the Eickhorn catalogue, you know that I have many holes in this collection, but eventually all things will come to me who waits.

Enjoy,

John

An SOS pickup, this is a long single etched Eickhorn bayonet.

The etch is a shooting prize to a machine gun unit dated 1935.

It ahs the heavy early fittings and an early double oval serrated tail TM.

John has showed me several of his finds but this one caught my eye. I love the dated etched bayonets.

Well, guys, here is a great bayonet to go with the one that I found at the SOS.

There are a handful of etched bayos on my bucket list and this is one of the top two.

You can find this type of bayonet in the Eickhorn catalogue as model 1681, Enlisted Man's Honour Bayonet.

It is also the same one as pictured in Wayne's book on pages 78 to 82, albeit with the addition of a portopee along the way.

Here is why this is so amazing and why it just had to be added to my collection:

1) it is an etch and bayonet pattern found in the Eickhorn catalogue as model 1681.
2) it has beautiful stag grips.
3) it has amazing cast patterns on the pommel and the crossguard and the top of the pommel.
4) it has a distributor mark, Anton Schweyer Munchen, on the spine.
5) it is a dedication to service in the 6th Unit of the Land Police Munich.
6) it has the small double oval serrated tail TM that I have found only on another special purchase, a shooting prize.
7) it is featured in Wayne's book.
8) it is in Mint- condition.

Enjoy,

John
