Late war Eickhorn Original Solingen over the shoulder stamped TM. Carl Eickhorn, stamped squirrel holding sword TM. Gilded brass hilt fittings show almost no wear/age patina to highlights with much of the honey gold factory fire gilding remaining in the recesses of the Eickhorn pattern eagle/swastika pommel and fouled anchor crossguard with the larger quillon block found on Eickhorn examples. The off-white celluloid-over-wood grip, as used by Eickhorn, shows minor surface wear with no visible cracks or chips and is complete with tight twisted brass wire wrap as used by Eickhorn. Plated double-etched blade grades EX++/Near Mint showing only minor surface wear/runner marks primarily to the obverse and reverse ricasso and minor gray speckling, but no nicks to the cutting edges. Blade is complete and retains 98% of the light gray background frosting in the fouled anchor and floral motif etch pattern. Gilded brass lightning bolt scabbard retains approximately 95% of the factory fire gilding and lacquer, but does show three very minor depressions. A very nice piece in truly beautiful condition.
