Imperial navy dagger by Eickhorn
Not too long ago an imperial navy dagger by Carl Eickhorn was posted for review. It turned out to be a reproduction. I thought it would be nice to post my navy dagger by the same maker. This time an original. When you compare this one to the reproduction dagger the difference in craftsmanship is obvious. I think daggers like this are true works of art. I love em Enjoy the pictures.

Lovely imperial Danny,is that a Damascus blade I see , also the scabbard has the knotted suspension ring collars, there is no comparison to the one posted previously
Let the drooling begin, is the Damascus blade an artificial "etched look" or true Damascus steel? I know they did both, not sure on what models. and the grip looks amazing with that glazed donut look.......yes I am hungry at the moment lol
There are not too many of those about Danny ! Beautiful !! It's a privilege to see it , thanks

Portepee aint bad either

It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!
