Item description:

See scan - almost perfect mint condition for this scarce and extremely rare type of dagger / knife. This is a Bulgarian WWII Royal pilot aviation highest ranking officer type dagger made by Solingen. Master name and hallmark is of CARL EICKHORN and has an etched squirrel. The whole blade is specially engraved and etched and has at one side the monogram of King Boris III and on the other side the text FOR THE KING AND FOR THE COUNTRY. All this is in black or very dark blue niello background. The dagger itself is in the form of an eagle - the handle is sculptured as an eagle head with 2 ruby eyes and at bottom of the handle there is a propeller and wings. The bottom part of the holster has an eagle claw holding a silver ball. This special kind and type of issue of this dagger was specially ordered by the Bulgarian Royal Palace and Army staff ONLY for the highest ranking aviation officers. So far I've seen only a handfull of this kind and issue and in my opinion this is one of the most beautiful daggers I've seen. Scarce collector piece.
