Description

ORIGINAL EICKHORN, SOLINGEN stamped sword from the “Field Marshall” series. Model number 1716 “Roon” Eickhorn pattern sword with 99.9% of factory gilding and most of the protective lacquer remaining to the superbly detailed pommel with raised oak leaf embellished knuckle-bow, backstrap, ferrule and crossguard. Obverse langet has Wehrmacht style national emblem and plain reverse langet. Black celluloid grip shows no surface wear with no cracks or chips and with triple twisted silver wire wrap present.  Plain, plated blade grades MINT showing no nicks or cuts. Blade is complete with steel scabbard retaining approximately 99.9%% of the period black enamel. With Eickhorn paper sales tag.

During the mid to late 1930's, the Carl Eickhorn firm produced a series of swords named for famous men in German history. Named the Feldherrn Serie (Commander Series) by Eickhorn, collectors refer to this group as the "Field Marshall" series even through only 4 of the 9 actually held that rank. Original design drawings produced by Paul Casberg exist for most of the swords. The earliest drawing, for the "Wrangel" pattern, is dated 1936. The last drawings, for the "Blucher" and "Roon" patterns, are dated 1938. All of the designs were patented by Eickhorn and are usually marked "Ges. Gesch" on the bottom of the cross guard. It is interesting to note that while the Roon pattern was the most expensive in the Eickhorn catalog (priced at 18 Reichsmarks and 65 pfennigs) it was also one of the most simple designs. If you look closely at one, however, you will notice the oak leaves throughout the sword are elaborately engraved and not simply cast.
