Eickhorn puts every knife through a series of exhaustive tests, ensuring that your blade performs flawlessly - every time.
Combat knives and bayonets are subjected to a twist test where their resistance to fracture, permanent deformation, loosening of parts or to detach from the test fixture are tested to military standard.
Eickhorn-Solingen Ltd. products are tested in accordance with NATO standards of operational extremes to -40°C and + 80°C. Within this temperature band all products function correctly.
Blades are tested throughout production for edge retention.
Combat knives and bayonets or their blades have to withstand impact tests and are not allowed to fracture, to have a permanent deformation, loosen parts or to detach from the test fixture.
I going to sell these for 65 USD with Pay Pal shipped to the lower 48 except MA and CA, and NYC.
(slightly less 62 USD with a postal money Order ( PM me for the address, or any other questions).
If you count customs brokers, shipping, and duty paid by me a few years ago when I imported the Aluminum handled versions from Eickhorn...I'm not making money.
My Pay pal Address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Again, 65 USD shipped to the lower 48 EXCEPT MA and CA, or NYC.
NO sales to CA or MA, or NYC. I can not ship to where illegal as it would subject me to those jurisdictions laws under the commerce clause.
