I bought a May 1931 Carl Eickhorn catalog, "DIVERSE SABEL FUR OFFIZIERE, MANNSCHAFTEN POLIZEI UND BEAMTE". The catalog is in German, English, French and Spanish.

Inside there is one page, showing 4 Gummiknuppel (Rubber stick) models.

I had no idea the firm of Carl Eickhorn offered these things and I have never seen one for sale on the popular auction site I visit every day.

I think I will search for one of these rubber sticks in the future.


Regards, Calvin

Thanks, Calvin,

I never knew that Eickhorn sold that king of weapon. Are there other unexpected things there ?

Thanks, Dave

Correction: Page 5: NAVY DAGGER 1514. (This dagger looks like the WW1 Imperial German model).

And I wonder what the cost would have been compared to the rubber truncheons sold by Albrecht Kind and Gunstav Genschow.

Hey Joe,

thanks for the word "truncheons".

Searching "Antique German truncheons" brings up more German military Gummi Kn├╝ppel (Rubber Truncheon) examples.

My 1912 August Stukenbrok catalog has on page 132, "Nr. 8905 Massiver Gummiknuttle" and the price is listed at Mk. 1.20.

This is an economy example with no frills, much like the Carl Eickhorn model 1546.

I want the Carl Eickhorn model 1548.

"Tools of the Trade", as Gaspare would call them.

Thanks again for showing us these pages, Calvin
