    Sword 38 (197) This is an unusual Carl Eickhorn produced weapon with a blued blade. The langet features a Political style eagle and swastika cast in aloy with the detailing either impressed or engraved. The trade mark is the "ORIGINAL" Eickhorn squirrel with sword. Although the hild is now dirty brown in colour, there are numerous smaller areas showing a gold or gilt wash.

    Sword 196 Although this sword bears no manufacturer's name or logo etc., the langet, both obverse and reverse are virtually identical to those shown at Sword 10 Post 11. On the evidence of Sword 10, I would attribute this sword to Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Cie. WK&C WKC. Although the back strap detail is different, both the Eagle and the reverse langet detailing are identical.
