Manufacturer- Eickhorn Solingen, Germany
Price is for 1 blade blank.
Blade length- 6.5"'
Blade Width- 7/8"
Blade Thickness- 3/16"
Tang Length- 4.75"
Steel Type- 1095
Condition- These blades are ground to shape with bevels, holes drilled and heat treated. These blades do NOT have a logo/makers mark stamped on the blades and they have NOT been coated/parkerized and they do not have guards. The blades do need to be sharpened. Overall they are in good condition, however, they have been shipped halfway around the world and stored away for decades in crates so there may be some wear/scratches from the blades rubbing against each other in the crates and there may be some minor corrosion/rust spots on some of them. These blades were coated in oil before being stored away so there is discoloration of the steel from the oil but it protected them from an major corrosion.
History- The M7 was first developed during the Vietnam war for use on the M16 machine gun. Variations of the M7 were manufactured by various companies and used by a variety of military groups around the globe. Eickhorn manufactured the M7 initially for Colt to be used by the US military beginning in the 70's and we have some samples with the Colt stamp on them but none of the ones in this batch have been stamped. We do not know exactly when these particular blades were made.
