1931-32 year Hitlerjugend HJ Farthenmesser No ricasso type- Eickhorn

Product Code: o74/1
Price: Not available

Description

Very early circa early 1933 year, Hitlerjugend HJ Farthenmesser No ricasso type- Eickhorn. Being a significant and most common producer seems to have a limited number of these early No ricasso types daggers with the most earlier markings ( 1931-32 year) of Squirrel marking in a single oval with inscription SOLINGEN GES.GESCHÜTZT. Very hard to find a single oval trademark by Eickhorn. Extremely nice condition with clear cross-grain over the blade. The nicely etched motto "Blut und Ehre," just a slight scabbard running, but no use, sharpening, etc. on it, which is hard to believe, but it has survived after many years after the war and preserved in excellent condition, with no signs of mistreatment. Commonly such knives are damaged by using them by Hitler's youth, who use them mostly in an inappropriate manner: throw them into the targets, use as a tool to unscrew something or open the cans and sharpen them every week. The main problem on this knife is a scabbard, with slight rust patina and traces of cleaning, approx 40% of the original black lacquer is missing. The leather tab is very soft and pliable. The nickel plating on the steel handle and hilt are in very good condition as well, with some loss of finish under the area of the upper part of the handle where the strap wraps around it, and slightly on a hilt. The HJ badge in the center of the bakelite grip is intact and has no damage.
