    OK Heer lovers.... BEHOLD!! This is a stunningly RARE Heer!! This very well may be the only Ivory gripped ALUMINUM fitted Eickhorn in the WORLD!!! Fascinating piece Tom, with an amazingly well preserved grip! Look at those bands on that aluminum scabbard..very much like the initial production bands, but not quite! Molded just for these rare pieces! Super looking type 1 Eick eagle with a well defined eye.. Just history in the making! Who knew this combination of fittings even existed..Stellar Heer Tom! Congrats! Kevin.

    I agree with Kevin. This configuration with the Ivory grip, type 1 crossguard and aluminum fittings probably is one of a kind. Congratulations on adding this beauty to your collection Tom!

    Thanks allot guys I was very pleased with this one. As a good friend says something always pops up right before a big show Murphy’s Law if you will but no way could I pass on this one. The seller was a non Military collector he acquired the dagger 25 years ago but had no recollection of the details on how he acquired it. Mario See you in Louisville in 16 days

    Thanks guys – Really a special dagger these aluminum Eickhorns were only discovered recently to my knowledge by advanced collector Wolf-Knifes I believe he has 2 examples. Mario This baby will stay in Texas as I don’t feel like dragging it through the airport to the show but I hope we can have a nice show & tell one evening with all our show finds.

    Kevin thank you my friend I would say these would be a key piece for an army type collection its quite refreshing knowing the stuff is still out there waiting to be discovered the hunt continues……I am on the look out for the next new crossguard variation

    Here’s a few of my most recent pickups both By Klaas. The first piece is fitted with a LG-B (Late Generic-B) crossguard - Klaas used at least 6 different crossguards during the period only two of them produced in house. The grip is a very pleasing variation/type that you rarely see and the blade is a polished cross-grained type. Scabbard bands exhibit the Klaas asterisks. When I first saw this dagger I was excited when I found Dr. Löhr in my 1939 rank list no doubt my guy as very few officers with the last name Löhr and only one doctor. Dr. Löhr was listed in 39 as an officer at the Armed Forces Welfare and Pension Office in Nurnberg. I bought the dagger and after some professional research I now have a large file on Oberstleutnant Dr. Löhr the high ranking officer lead an interesting career - Noted below are some interesting highlights from later in his career with a ruff English Translation.
