A great piece by Eickhorn! The blade on this one has been cleaned hard. It's bright and shows some evidence of pitting that's been polished out. There's just minor evidence of crossgrain left. It has a beautifully executed, dark stamped Over-the-shoulder "Original Eickhorn Solingen" maker mark! It has a perfect tip and solid fit. The blade on this one rates Exc+. The buffer pad is lost to time. The textbook scabbard looks great! It depicts awesome details throughout, with the random pebbling, oak leaves and acorns. It remains completely dent free and both throat retaining screws remain intact and unturned. It has a snug fit up to the crossguard. The aluminum eagle crossguard and pommel look awesome! The eagle has good detail to its head, feathers, wings and top side oak leaves and acorns. The pommel is beautifully hand enhanced and has proud swastika surrounded by oak leaves and acorns. 60% of the gold gilding remains intact. The early trylon grip has aged to a pleasing lemmon over time. I just peeked under the portepee and there is a wee tiny chip you will have to go looking to find. The aluminum springy wire wrap remains tightly intact. Overall a good example!
