    Default eickhorn back to back squirrel km dagger

    Hi guys, I picked this up yesterday but daggers aren't what I generally collect so have no idea on this apart from its an early dagger possibly imperial with later pommel from when they were told to change them, the blade is engraved but its hard to photograph, all opinions welcomed rgds Dave

    An Imperial WWI era Eickhorn that had it's pommel swapped to convert it to a WWII model. You wonder who carried it? A career Navy man or did a father give his dagger to his son? Either way, a fine dagger and uncommon. Personally, I think the Imperial Crossguards look better than the TR models. Nice find!

    Great Imperial/TR dagger. It appears to be just
    as you say - swapped out pommel.
    Congrats.........

    Hi Scrooge..i think you done very well with this find!!...hard to come by as what has already been said..the hammered scabbard is at extra cost to the original owner. Ronnie is right ...I see some remnants of an etch...but at a quick glance it looked like a plain blade. Kriegsmarine daggers from both periods...dresses up any collection. Nice find. Regards Larry

    Hi Dave, as others already said this is a nice imperial dagger with a TR pommel. I also think the grip is a TR piece. It is not uncommon to see these imperial pieces with the later TR pommel. Some officers that served during WW1 also served in WW2 and were allowed to keep their dagger. They just had to switch out the pommel for the new TR one. Interesting is that the pommel is clearly a product of WKC. Too bad the scabbard has been heavily cleaned at some point. Most of the gilding has disappeared. Anyhow, nice piece of history
