Original WWII German 2nd Model Luftwaffe Dagger by WKC
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a wartime produced 2nd Model Luftwaffe Dagger, with WKC Knight Head logo. It is also a recent Vet purchase. The dagger has all aluminum fittings, being a slightly lighter attractive tone throughout. This pommel is the type with the pebbling in the backgrounds and it has good detail to the oak leaves. The two swastikas, one on each side, are nicely raised out. This pommel shows little to no wear.
The cross guard is also a textbook variety. This cross guard has outstanding detail to the eagle which is flying to the viewer's left. The feathering detail is outstanding, as is the beak, eye, breast feathering, talons and mobile swastika. The reverse panel also has good, crisp pebbling. The upper quillon arms have the engraved style oak leaves and acorns. The ferrule is also a matching color. This dagger is equipped with a light egg yolk color grip. This grip is in perfect condition, nicely wrapped with springy aluminum wire.
The scabbard matches the hilt exactly. It is a typical WKC type. This scabbard has crisp pebbled panels and the oak leaves to the carrying bands are nicely detailed with the pebbling in the backgrounds. The throat is retained by a single flat screw on the right side, typical of this producer. The throat is also the more oval shape than other makers.
The blade of this example is nice and bright throughout, having 95% cross graining and good tip. There is just the most modest of age in a couple of areas but it is really nothing. This blade easily grades in near excellent condition. The brown pebbled washer is in place within the cross guard recesses. A very fine, crisply marked WKC example!
