    Hi All .... I thought I’d add this to the Forum as I’ve been taking a few pictures.
    I had it about 20-25 years or so.
    It lives on the same shelf next to the Foresters Subordinate that I posted earlier.

    Hi Stevade,

    this is a postwar Eickhorn, simple to see by the Etched logo.
    All pre 1945 Eickhorn cutlasses have stamped logo's facing with the feet of squirrel to the tip of the blade.
    The etched one have the ottom of the logo towards the guard.

    Hey Stevade,

    Nice piece you have. It is I believe as Ger states a post 1945 Production piece. I have always studied that the etched blade and squirrels feet facing towards guard points to post war production. Here is an example for sale that is a 1960s production. Time Traveler - WW2 German Deluxe Senior Forestry Cutless

    Here is an early Weimar piece Wittmann has on his site:

    One question Ger, if it's post WW2, why didn't they use the "head looking over the shoulder" logo, which dates from about 1942, rather than this type, which was used earlier? I've seen the Eickhorn KCB bayonets from the early 1970's which used the "looking back squirrel" as well.

    I believe these are produced as copies by Eickhorn, and the originals are marked lets say 99% with this logo instead of the over the shoulder.
    I posted 1 over the shoulder Eick forestry…..but they are very rare

    It is not a terrible oversight on your part, and probably common for alot of people unknowing, I actually learned about it from one of wittmanns videos years ago, at least it's not a post war SS!! Still a beautiful piece.
