    Hey larry,

    I'm in up by the NE airport. I don't have the dagger in hand but thanks for the offer. To me, looks like the maker marks are too good. Otherwise, I'm not that fluent in determining if it's fake or not.

    Im leaning on the motto and logo being Laser etched. Give me a shout sometime when your around.

    Best Larry

    Abit of an unusual dagger. It's a Transitional or MidPeriod and features the proper acid etched Eickhorn maker's mark for the 1936 era. The fittings look to be plated and show plate lift but nothing major. The blade shows crossgraining and a good dark motto etch and is in decent condition, but the painted sheath is in a rougher state. It is abit difficult to tell with the photo, but the grip eagle looks to be aluminum. The grip wood is in good condition and has a nice fit to the guards. I'm not in love with the hanger, as its shape does not match the daggers. I almost would wonder if it's a repro replacement, but this is going only by the photographs.

    Overall, I am not seeing alot that has raised too many red flags on this one. I like the early all nickel daggers, but that's just me. Are they asking alot for it? As Larry said, it has been taken apart at one time or another, but many GI's just could Not resist doing this, so it's not overly unusual to see. I guess right now that it pretty much sits at what the asking price is and how much you like it.

    I dunno,Larry. Under magnification, I'm not seeing much that's saying lazer etch. The letter edges are good but not razor crisp and the Squirrel looks as it should(to me,anyway, but who knows? I'm a hundred and ninety and my eyes are going to hell...lol).

    William,

    The asking price is $1200. I don't have any SS in my collection and thought if this was right, I might add it.

    Thanks.

    "IF" the etches that Larry has noted are okey-then $1200 would be a top of the price range. But I would Definitely take Larry up on his offer before I'd lay out over a Grand for it.

    The scabbard is NSKK having been repainted over an SA scabbard..the same with the grip. IMO this is not representative of an Eickhorn product and not of this mid period production.

    As I said in Post #2..." some details are not favorable "

    Regards Larry

    Other thoughts and comments welcome..until the truth be found.
