    Dirk officer Kriegsmarine 1938 "Original, Eickhorn, Solingen

    He got it from his grandfather, a legacy officer submariner. He in turn found its detection and the rise in the Black Sea flooded the submarine U-20.
    If anyone is interested in the truth of history can use an interpreter - http://izvestia.ru/news/417697
    One of the most famous companies of Solingen.
    Dimensions: Overall length: 425 mm
    Blade length: 250 mm
    width at the heel of the blade: 19 mm
    The blade is steel, straight, Two cutting edges, two dales, nickel-plated. On the heel of the blade is the brand of a gun shop "Original, Eickhorn, Solingen". On the blade etching plotted image on the marine theme in a floral ornament. Handle oval, from white plastic. As you can see in the photo yellowed plastic. The spiral groove handle wrapped in twisted brass wire. The head of the handle is in the form of an eagle holding in paws a wreath with a swastika made of gilded brass. Cross - gold plated silver. In the center of the cross there is a button latches lock the dagger in a sheath. Metal appliance dagger and scabbard made of gold-plated brass. Scabbard by flooding crush down by something falling and the end of the was flattened. On the scabard there is a slight deformation, but it does not affect the landing dirk. Condition is generally good. The well-preserved original gold plated. Wearout is natural. Dirk is in Ukraine. I know from my father that the blade is of great value. As the officer in the Kriegsmarine were not many among the 22 million German soldiers. Leave your suggestions because i do not want to mention some very inadequate price.

    Submarine sank in 1944 in salt water and that knife was retreived in 2008 (date of the newspaper article). Am I undeerstanding this correctly ?

    That knife does not appear to be a knife that has been in salt water for all that time. Maybe I have mis-read the article ???

    Excuse my bad English. I use a translator. I was trying to convey that a boat of this type is really drowned in the Black Sea. So to speak in support of my story.

    If you're trying to sell this, you're required to post a price. Against the rules to fish for offers.

    Excuse me. I thought so correctly. Our appraisers say not less than $ 2,800 and not more than $ 3,300.I dwell on $ 3,000

    Rebuke inappropriate. I am not an expert on antiques. So I initially asked what interested me offer price. There was no answer, and the day before to message Kev.B i apply to the appraiser. I also am not a specialist in the appraisers! But can then answer what do you react so violently? And where is your logic? I have to believe you, not the appraiser? Dirk which were produced 100 thousand works that glorified the city with the 17 th century can not cost $ 3000? Why did I ask interesting...gold plated scabbard, silver garda gilt, gold headband, illustrious surname Wizard etc. This is probably very cheap? Yes?

    Discussions on value are not encouraged on the site. These Naval Officers daggers are sought after but a large amount of them do survive, a search via Google or similar will turn up plenty of these, sold and for sale, giving you enough information be able to make a realistic judgement.

    Well, then do not discuss to me-this question. Or do you not see that I have price? Strange people are. Agree on a price - not want to. Price - not accept. If you has nothing to say on theme, just not write. Some kind of kindergarten.

    Your last sentence in the thread that I replied to. Quote: This is probably very cheap? Yes? sounds to me like an invitation, to reply and offer advice, which is what I have done. The advice that I offered was given in the hope that you may benefit from it, but, if you choose to see it as some sort of criticism from a strange person in a kindergarten then you have misjudged my intention.
    M.H.
