First Model Luftwaffe Officer Dagger by Eickhorn
A first model chained Luftwaffe officer's dagger by Carl Eickhorn. The blade bears the Eickhorn squirrel trademark and has mottled gray areas on each side of the blade. The leather washer is in place at the top of the blade. The pommel, crossguard, chain and scabbard fittings are all of the aluminum variety. The blue leather grip is triple wrapped with wire and it is in excellent condition, as is the leather of the scabbard. The gilt finish on the sun wheel swastikas of the pommel and the crossguard is intact. The chain hanger, the belt attachment clip, the scabbard fittings and the guard and pommel all exhibit an uncleaned, yellow film, as the dagger is in a largely uncleaned state. The attachment clip is manufacturer marked by OLC.
