    Hi Silas..Nice Eickhorn which appears to have the 4th variant type. I will let the Heer Gents comment further on this dagger.

    The comparison can be seen here through WRF member Degens website wardaggers.com - German Army Dagger Crossguard Makers Reference

    Thanks for posting and sharing. hang out for awhile the Heer Gents come around quickly when they smell Heer Steel

    Hi, it is interesting to note, that the pommel looks like Generic "B" and not the Eickhorn product. The silvering on pommel is poor, but crossguard show still good quality. So I think, this pommel donīt belong to this dagger, but it is only my opinion - it is possible that Eickhorn ran out of its own pommels and purchased them from another source. What you have to do, is to compare both pommel and crossguard, if they are made from same material and if the silvering and patina match.

    Now about knot of the dagger, it looks like reproduction to me, if you compare it to dagger, you will see, that the dagger reflect a lot of wear, but knot is mint.

    Other parts looks good and correct for Eickhorn... But I canīt say that this dagger is textbook and 100% correct, sorry

    Best regards

    Peter

    Good eye Peter! You are absolutely right on both the pommel and portepee.

    Yes, Good eye Peter, I have to agree that this is not a late Eick pommel, but looks to be a Gen A or WKC type in my opinion (look at width and spacing of bands and indented leaf veins) which is a company that traded with Eickhorn but I personally haven't seen any with the WKC pommel so far...

    Eagle eye Peter

    getting focused on the guard and scabbard bands simply overlooking the pommel, you are absolutely right Peter!
    Thx for a keen eye....

    Regards
