ORIGINAL EICKHORN, SOLINGEN squirrel holding sword TM. Aluminum hilt fittings show almost no wear/age with excellent detail to the pommel with Customs pattern oak leaves and crossguard with up-turned wing tips on Customs style langet eagle. The leather grip shows virtually no major surface wear and no significant loss of color, and is complete with tight spongy aluminum wire wrap. Plated blade grades near EX+ showing some surface wear/runner marks along with some speckling throughout, and is complete with an original tan leather buffer pad. Leather-covered scabbard shows light surface wear primarily to the reverse lower leather section and matches the grip color perfectly. The nickel-plated fittings show almost no wear and are complete with undamaged headless retaining screws. As is correct for period produced Land Customs daggers, the incised decorative lines on the fittings appear only on the obverse surface. A rare dagger in truly excellent condition!
