Army Dagger by Eickhorn - Peter Kolb

Purchased from Witty in 2019 so I'm going to use his description:

  • This Army Officer's Dagger is a textbook example, have the final style of fittings used by this prestigious firm. The silvering is perfect throughout this dagger, having a very nice patina. The pommel is in fine condition, having no hits to the rim and no surface wear to the top. The twelve standing oak leaves are nice and crisp with hand-enhanced veins. The crossguard eagle is as nice as you will see; the bird looks to the left and has extremely fine detailing throughout the head, breast and wing feathering, talons and wreathed mobile swastika. The ferrule is the standard type we see with these last style fittings. The grip is a most beautiful pumpkin orange, being in perfect condition and totally uniform in color throughout. The scabbard matches the vintage of the hilt parts. It is nice and straight and has finely pebbled panels. There are some traces of silver frosting in the areas protected by the carrying bands. The rest of the silvering is 100% intact throughout the scabbard. The bands feature overlapping oak leaves and the throat is the thicker type, retained by a single screw in the reverse center. Although the blade is still nice and bright with a needle-like tip it does have some minor spotting on both sides, roughly a third of the way down the length. Beyond this the blade is in very good condition. What is interesting about this blade, though, is the fact that it has a rarely seen distributor mark on the obverse ricasso. It is marked “Peter Kolb, Amberg”. This is a small town just to the east of Nuremberg. Apparently Kolb made a deal with Eickhorn to sell daggers in his shop, and as such found is name and location on the blades. The reverse of the dagger is marked with the standard manner, having the 1935-41 Squirrel trademark. The original blade washer is in place. This Army Dagger is a great example for those of you that enjoy collecting all of the different types that were available during the period. There is a distributor marking identical to this dagger shown on an Eickhorn dagger in my Army Book, on page 125.
