A good example of a German C.WW2 Army Officer's Sword
This sword would have been carried by an officer in the German Army from the 1930's through to the end of WW2. It is of good quality so I would guess that it is either early or pre-War. It has an elaborately decorated hilt and a celluloid grip bound with silver twistwire. The blade is plain and nickel plated with an impressed maker's mark of the Eickhorn sword making company of Solingen, Germany. It is interesting to note that this sword does not have an inset eagle and swastika to the hilt langet as is quite common with these swords. Not sure why this is so although it might have been a personal decision of the owner. Comes complete with its original black painted scabbard.
Condition of the Sword
In good overall condition with a little wear to the hilt and some loss of paint to the black scabbard.
Specifications of the Sword
Blade length is 34.5 inches (39 inches overall).
