    Default Minty Eickhorn Sword with Rare felt cover for review

    Hi All,
    I was deciding for awhile what kind of sword to get as my first and what maker/condition I wanted, well this one made the decision easy for me, it is a Eickhorn Wrangel series I believe, dove head army sword with original felt cover!! The only time I ever saw one of these was in johnsons reference books, and in the photos of the Eickhorn showroom, the sword is about as close to mint and shiny as you can get and you can comb your hair in it(if I had hair) the detail is really amazing with all the oak leaves etched about, the scabbard is nice also with minor wear, the felt bag is a really nice addition, it shows aging from storage and a small tear by the top, but it was priced to sell and with the portepee also its about as complete of an example as you could ask for, the original paper sword tag was a separate purchase just to give it that complete showroom look, hope you enjoy the photos, this baby is going on the wall!

    Thanks guys, all I need is about 100 more and I can reopen the Eickhorn store lol
    I wish it still had the little circular red metal control tab that came with these, but I hear they are very rare and very very very expensive, almost as much as the sword itself!
