This is a beautiful World War II German Kriegsmarine officer’s dagger that remains in excellent condition. The white celluloid handle is complete and without chips, cracks, or damage. The pommel with eagle and swastika is a deluxe type that exhibits exceptional detail and well-defined eagle’s head. The locking button on the guard is complete and fully functional. The blade is with bright finish and beautifully etched with anchor and floral designs on both sides. The recasso is marked with the Eickhorn, Solingen firm name and squirrel logo. There are no nicks or pits to the blade and it remains in excellent condition. The cross guard is fouled with a gold navy portapee that has been undisturbed since the war. The brass scabbard is beautifully age toned and without damage except for one very small and shallow dent towards the middle that is almost in perceivable. This dagger remains a beautiful, untouched example that displays wonderfully and is unlike those usually encountered on the market.
