This cutless is absolutely stunning. It is complete with its skinning knife which is also done in the same pattern Damascus as the main blade. As one can see from the photos the band pattern is just about mint. Both the skinner and the main blade are marked with an eagle and Hugo Koller Solingen. The guilt on all the fittings is extraordinary. It has all been hand detailed as one can see on the photos. It is just absolutely outstanding the amount of hand work that was done to enhance original casting. The tang is also marked Echter Damascener, below that MD. The leather though it could be cleaned up has never been touched but is solidly intact.
