German WWII RAD Hewer by Eickhorn-Sound example with excellent stag grip plates. Overall, the thick nickel plating is 95% intact. There is some minor bubbling on the black plate of the handle and under the eagle’s beak in the pommel area. This is a desirable example as it was actually carried by a leader as this model came out before the leader's dagger was produced. You know this because it is stamped on both the throat of the scabbard and the reverse of the handle Fü with what appears to be a number 9 on its side. These were hand stamped. It's a cool attribute. The original black enamel paint on the scabbard is 90% intact. The details on the fittings are excellent. The bottom two screws on the lower scabbard fitting have slight burrs (scratches) but this is not uncommon as they would occasionally loosen up a bit. The blade has the RAD motto which translate to "Work enobles". There is slight sharpening to the cutting edges but this is also a common trait. This does not show up too well in the photos but we wanted to make you aware of this. The reverse of the blade is well marked with RADJ in a triangle along with GES. GESCH and a pre-1935 Eickhorn squirrel. There are also some light discolorations on the blade but overall, the blade rates V.G. Very sound offering. This will not last long!
