Hi everyone,

Nearly after tow decades I found two extra Eickhorn Advertising flyers for my collection. I wonder how rare they are? It was told me that in the old days it was seemly easy to find them but now they seem to be dried up just like the Kundendienst etc... I know these flyers only from the books of Thomas Johnson and Skipper Greenwade. Anyone who has the complete series and want to show them?


Kind regards, Wim

Thanks for posting John. Some very nice Eickhorn items. I suppose the flyers are pretty rare to find? One collector told me that in the early days they were fairly easy to obtain. I never searched them intensive but it took me several years before I had by coincidence the chance to add two more to my collection.

Regards, Wim

Nothing paper with Eickhorn logo on is easy to find.

Occasionally, I see them on ebay. Many of these were pretty cheap. But, not at all common.

Hello Wim, although I do not own any of the flyers you show these are obviously excerpts of the well known "EICKHORN Kundendienst" (in contrary to some separate, special catalogs and items shown by JohnZ). Therefore I never did look after them but for complete Kundendienst loose leaf binders alsthough they are nice items and for sue collectible.
EICKHORN papers are always interesting but I do remember the large factory folios which would be the most interesting source for edged weapon collectors in the world - IF these would ever have been in hands of a german speaking, edged weapon experienced person. Unfortunately the are not.... Sooner or later this valuable source will be gone to time.

Regards,

Thanks for your reply Wotan. They are nice display flyers in A4 Size, so much bigger then the Kundendienst. But the inside pictures are indeed the same. The flyers series are also depicted in a group shot of advertising material in the Eickhorn Kundendienst. I heard also the rumour that valuable original Eickhorn documents are in the hands of a an English speaking person.
