Hello

Looks like a nice EK from the photos. :beer: Does the ring really go through a hole on the top arm, as it appears from the pictures and is this a common feature of Deschler EK2s?

Hi David

The answer is yes, This the only maker that I have seen where the ring actually goes through the top of the frame. See new pics of the 3 Deschlers I have. Hope you like and coments are appreciated.

Rick I hope to not offend by posting a detail from your photo. (I will remove it without question if you want) I have to point out a detail that I find most amazing about these pieces. From a construction stand point - I understand that on many EK's the Swas and the dates are 'beveled' so that they drop out of the die nicely. (mass production) However with these and some other makers that releif of the swas and the dates is nearly vertical. making it not so easy to get the core out of the die - more hand made quality to me. I like the sharp edges - like you could cut your finger on them. Just pure quality. :cheers:

Here's a nice Imperial EK2 by Deschler made during the Third Reich. Maker marked 1 on the ring and the quality is just superb!
