    The Red Cross hewer made only Klaas and Luneschloss IMO.
    Never heard on Eickhorn or any other maker to make these, but everything is possible.
    Fact is Ivan that its available in their cataloque, im trying to find out if they were only distributing or even producing..

    Hi Ger, Thank you for your input!! You lit a fire under my backside and, in the hope of finding a little squirrel, I stripped my hewer but alas it is unmarked other than the grip slabs. Sorry that it did not have a squirrel!!

    Cheers Michael R

    ITEM 10. Railway Officer's Dagger (First Model).

    About 45 years ago, I purchased a “First Model Railway Officer’s Dagger with a black grip. A couple of years later, I purchased a second dagger of the same pattern. Both came from trusted sources and both were entitled “Railway Dagger”. At that time most, if not all of my fellow dagger collectors accepted these items at face value and as titled. It is only since joining this Forum that I have become aware of the controversy as to not only the title but even of the existence of this particular dagger. Whilst I am confident of there having been later pattern(s) of this dagger, I now wonder if the two in my collect are Railway Daggers, black hilted Army Daggers or just plain spurious?? In any event, I am not too worried one way or the other! Until someone can make and support a definitive statement, to me they are, as purchased, Railway daggers. All this said, I would be very interested in any opinions on either the daggers or the general subject. I have some opinions of my own on these daggers which I will keep to myself for now and see what comments the weapons evoke.

    This dagger bears the trade mark Alexander Coppel of Solingen (ALCOSO) along side a set of scales and the initial “ACS”.

    5. Quillon block. The block, devoid of langets, is quite plain but elegant and terminates in rounded scroll typ ends. The obverse bears a National Eagle looking to its right. The reverse is devoid of a central device but is occasionally used as an escutcheon for the owner’s name or initials etc..
    6. Quillon finials. Not a feature on this weapon.
