A Mexican Naval Cadet Dagger (Naval Dirk) by Carl Eickhorn

Nice Mexican 1930's era example, with 465 mm nickel-plated steel blade, magnetic, with unsharpened edges, remaining bright and crisp. It looks a but darkened toward the tip but those are just shadows. The blade is unmarked but these were mostly made in Solingen Germany. Eickhorn is a known maker. The obverse center block has the Mexican eagle perched on a prickly pear cactus devouring a snake in the center below by a small trophy of arms.The felt washer has been lost to time. The reverse of the crossguard has a blade release button, with hand enhanced acorns on either end of the crossguard. Above the crossguard is a bronze ferrule butting an ivory-coloured celluloid grip, which is smooth, very lightly contacted, with seven rows of tightly wrapped twisted bronze wire in the grooves. The pommel is designed with an ornately crafted eagle's head, with a large ring placed through the beak,. The black leather-wrapped scabbard has a brass chape and locket, each with an ornate design. There is an elaborate frog stud on the obverse. Included is a long knot.
