A very rare 3rd Reich dagger. Issued to police who were stationed at railway barges and ferries. Eickhorn was the only maker of this dagger. Blade is bright and still has nice crossgrain, however it does have some spotting to both front and rear of the blade. Not pitted, however. Fittings show age and darkening, but no lifting or peeling. Grip is intact and shows no chips or cracks. Overall the dagger shows it’s age, but would still rate at FINE- condition.
