Here we have a beautiful chained NSKK leader dagger by Eickhorn! The blade on this one is stunning! The acid etched “Alles für Deutschland” motto and “RZM M7/66 1940” (Carl Eickhorn, Solingen) maker mark are both dark, crisp and beautifully executed! They truly provide a wonderful contrast to the bright blade! The crossgrain is stunning and runs the full length of the blade. It has a perfect tip and perfect fit. Cant as for much more! The blade rates an easy NM/Mint-! It shows the common runner marks and minor greying but I’m being anal! The steel based black enamel painted scabbard is in excellent condition! As with most of these the chain hits the scabbard and chips the paint. This one looks great and 96%+ paint coverage remains. It is also completely dent free! It only shows minor spidering throughout. The steel based, nickel-silver plated scabbard fittings look wonderful! They retain 99% plating coverage and continue to remain nice and bright! The ball is perfectly round and all five screws remain intact! The steel based, nickel-silver plated chain is also in excellent shape! The obverse NSKK eagles, sun wheel swastikas and Nordic triangular “Thurs” rune (symbolizing the power of the God Thor) are all beautifully detailed! The correct links are stamped “NSKK Korpsfuhrung Musterschutz” and “A RZM M5/8” (F. W. Assmann & Söhne, Lüdenscheid). The clip continues to function well! A beautiful chain! The scabbard to crossguard fit is perfect and closes with a snap! The alloy based nickel-silver plated crossguards look excellent and have that nice bright finish that matches the scabbard fittings perfectly! The crossguard edges show minor plating loss towards the grip which is quite common to see. The grained hardwood grip is beautiful! It has a few pressure marks and one 1mm flake, but no cracks, chips or splits! The aluminum eagle has nice detail and sits perfectly in the grip. The roundel retains 100% of its enamel and also has a perfect fit. An excellent example of a chained NSKK by Eickhorn! One you will be proud to own!
