MARKED BLADE - Carl Eickhorn
Apparently, this Schebben retail firm did enough business with Eickhorn
to warrant the factory stamping their name into the blade.This is a relatively scarce retailer, as I have only seen it a couple of times in the past.The reverse of the blade is darkly etched with the 1935-41 trademark.It is an early mark however, as the blackening in the background is the best you will see.The small style brown pebbled leather washer is in place protecting this fine, mint blade.A great dagger here and a real beauty for the guy collecting "early" or collecting "retailer" or collecting "fine condition" or collecting "Eickhorn

This Army Officer is later than the first style fittings that I identify in my Army book and earlier than the second style fittings.The crossguard resembles the type I show on page 25, but also has some of the same details as the first type I show on page 24.This must have been a crossguard that Eickhorn
was considering using before they finally adopted the second type.
