Here we have a 2nd Model Navy Dagger (Kriegsmarine Dolch) by WKC - Weyersberg Kirschbaum & Cie AG of Solingen. The fouled anchor etched blade on this one looks great. The details to the fouled anchors, sea serpents and leaf motives are awesome and provide a nice contrast to the blade! The stamped knights head "WKC" maker mark is also beautifully executed! The fit is snug and the tip is perfect! The blade rates Exc+/Exc++. It shows age spotting/greying and the common surface scratches throughout. The buffer pad is intact. The brass based and gold gilded lightning bolt scabbard looks great, especially with the hand enhancing towards the tip! It provides beautiful aged patina and detail throughout the oak leaf bands and decorative motif. It shows common pressure marks as is with most of these soft brass scabbards. It retains both of its original side throat retaining screws. The crossguard and pommel provide wonderful patina and detail to the anchor and proud eagle perched on top. The push button works well. The gorgeous orange trylon grip is a great treat on these. It looks great with only two wee cracks to the op and a few pressure marks to the obverse. If you put a portepee on it they would hide those up nicely. It has the correct double twisted wire wrap, that remains nice and tight. When I got this piece it was missing the push button and buffer pad I had both period original parts here and added them to it. I also snugged up the fit with a piece of newspaper under the pommel. A beautiful piece that deserves a great home!
