    Default KM Dagger Eickhorn

    Opinions on this one please chaps. It belongs to a friend of mine and I have been meaning to try and buy the thing off him, but I just wanted to check things over first. Would about £400 be a good price if all is well? The eagle is a little loose, but if you tighten it all the way it is facing the wrong way so something is up.

    Hi Krad, Nothing wrong with this one, it looks alot like my Eickhorn actually, dented scabbard and all, I had the same problem with the pommel, whatever you do dont over tighten it to get it to face the right way, just turn it back half a turn and leave it loose, you may be able to put some kind of padding inside to keep it tight, not sure why this happens maybe somebody here can shed some light on that problem. The price is right on target IMO

    Hi Krad..nice Naval you have but it sounds better when I say it to the ladies. The Eickhorn logo is a rare variant. Very nice dagger to have for the type collector. Regards Larry

    Thanks chaps

    Larry it isn't mine, yet... I hope to tempt it away from the collection of a friend. The logo actually threw me off a little when I was doing my own research. I struggled to match it. Good to know it is a good one.

    Hi Krad..is there any damage or cracking on the top of the grip..that may cause it to condense..and turn a bit more than normal?

    Not that I noticed Larry, the grip was fully intact from what I remember.

    I think a more qualified answer should come from Dr73 "danny" I seem to think that the crossguard should sit a little more flush on top of the brass fitting between the crossguard and scabbard.

    for reference of other 2nd types http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/dagger...ection-342128/

    Hi Krad, first of all, like others already said, your dagger is a nice untouched Eickhorn navy dagger with the last trademark this producer used. This makes this dagger a late-war example. The problem you have with the pommel is occasionally encountered with navy daggers. A possible explanation for this is that the dagger was disassembled at some point in time and not put back together propperly. I have seen this more than once. This causes a small space in the area around the crossguard (see added picture). When that happens, the pommel can't be turned as far as it used to with the result that the eagle is facing the wrong way.
    Many new collectors don't realize that a navy dagger is a bit harder to put back together than for example a heer dagger because of the construction of the crossguard. A navy crossguard consists of several pieces where a heer crossguard is just made out of one piece.
