This is a great, all-original example of the Navy Dagger made by Eickhorn Soligen
It’s really nice, and in very good condition overall. The blade on this one is bright and clean, with plenty of the original darkening to the textbook etching. The blade features a crisply incised manufacturer logo indicating manufacture by Eickhorn Solingen, a prestigious Third Reich manufacturer , The handle shows only light wear, and features a wire-wrapped grip that is free of cracks or other issues. The brass alloy handle fittings have some old dark patination to the recesses, giving the appearance of added depth to the details. The push button to release the dagger is there and fully working. This dagger is complete with the correct Navy Portepee, which certainly appears to have been on there forever. The portepee shows heavy wear, matching the grip, with a few spots of fraying to the woven aluminum wire. The scabbard on this one is with the typical slight darkening from age and handling, and a couple of small spots, but no damage at all. Overall, it’s a nice choice, complete example of the Navy Dagger!
