The 2008 ES product website introduces state of the art German edged weapon and rescue tool products to the international market. Designed by the worlds leading knife designer, Dietmar Pohl and manufactured by the company’s engineers to exacting military quality control standards in the most technically advanced production unit based in Solingen, the heartland of the German steel industry. For over 150 years the Eickhorn name has been associated with the manufacture of edged weapons, combat and rescue knives supplied to government buyers. ES has an established international reputation for innovative product design, engineering and quality control.
This expertise now extends to the equally demanding non-military edged products market. In order to fulfil the company’s strict quality control demands, only the highest quality specifically designed steel, rigorously tested to meet the operational demands of our military clients worldwide, is used in all ES products. There is no compromise; our products are guaranteed to meet German quality control standards at every stage of the production process.

Leading exponents of high-performance steel design and engraving such as the internationally renowned Damascus steel designer, Markus Balbach, whose Damascus blades represent the genius of design that will make these knives future investments and collectors items.
