Original Eickhorn, Solingen with squirrel looking over shoulder TM. Gilded brass hilt fittings show light wear/age with an even, brilliant gold finish throughout. The off-white celluloid grip shows almost no wear and no visible cracks or chips and is complete with tight twisted brass wire wrap as used by Eickhorn. Plated, double-etched blade grades EX+/EX++ showing minor surface wear/runner marks and minor gray speckling, but no nicks or cuts to the cutting edges. Blade features gray background frosting in the fouled anchor and floral motif etch pattern. Gilded brass lightning bolt scabbard shows no damage or depressions, with much of the gilding remaining to finish.
