Eickhorn Heer with 3rd model Crossguard
I am working on some more photos of my daggers. This is one of my favourite Eickhorns. Third model crossguard, with nicely patined plating and a great unflawed "Glass" grip.
The blade is pristine with only very minor runner marks. It is a joy to hold.

This one with the 4th model crossguard, stamped logo.
And one with 4th model crossguard etched logo.
Great daggers shown in some very nice photography! Well done. Really don't see many with the the Eick 3rd guard.. Kevin.
This is a strange one, I actually have two examples exactly the same. It is very early with a tapered tang. All fittings and scabbard are aluminum. The throat of the scabbard is formed in one piece with the scabbard body.
One with a black grip. I am certain that it started it's life on the dagger painted white. No trace of white paint remains.
I have admired your photo skills for a few years now.

Excellent photos indeed! Thankyou for posting these Wolfgang..and especially the black gripped Heer..which is a topic of its own in another thread I started about the First Model Railways characteristics being the same. Who is the producer of this "Black Beauty?" Regards Larry

Thank you Larry. The black gripped dagger is an Eickhorn, 4th model crossguard, etched logo.
