I don't like the etch either. The whole text seems to be displaced up .. look at the spacing between the top line and the text and the spacing between the bottom line.

Pep, I agree with my learned colleague detractors. It looks like a parts dagger with a fake applied etch.

It shouldn't be a problem getting a refund from Bruce Hermann.
Let us know how it goes, as everyone in this hobby makes mistakes.
It's how they deal with it afterward that is telling.

Best of Hunt,
-Serge

well,
spoke with bruce. he just told me the story of the dagger. he supports the dagger as fully original as "this actually came directly from the daughter of a WWII US Army veteran, who passed away and it was in his war souvenirs. As to the scabbard I have encountered many daggers with this issue. Many were mixed up after the war by the souvenir hunting GI's" .... "I sent pictures of this dagger to one of the world's most renown dealers in high end militaria and he finds no fault with it. He says that the etching was done by an after market blade retailer, not the dagger maker, thus it is not in the Eickhorn engraving style".

concerning the scabbard I saw some daggers around (I remember one from wittmann's site) with 2 side screws. I guess this was an early type.

collecting daggers is not my main field. I bought it to display my tunics. all I can say is that the set matches in condition, old patina, ... everything. I understand your comments and I say thanks for them. of course, it is not a textbook dagger but ... anyway, any other comment is welcome.

I just took extra pics ....

IMO daggr itself is original, Carl Eickhorn Heer 4. type. As is stated before scabbard is not Eickhorn, and etch looks odd to me.

Looks to be an Alcoso scabbard with their typical mid period bands and thin body.. scabbards do get switched and replaced.. who knows when.. in period or post war? Best, Kevin.
