Well here's a restored WKC matching example! The blade on this one has been cleaned and the tip reshaped. None of the bluing remains. The front of the blade is stamped "1846 l" (distribution mark) and the back; "41 cvl" indicating the year of construction (1941) and the manufacturer (WKC). The stamps exactly match the scabbard. The steel based, black anodized scabbard has been cleaned hard, I actually thing it's been sand blasted. It has lots of wee hits to the reverse. The single side screw remains intact. The scabbard sits securely up against the hilt. The hilt looks to have been cleaned the same time as the scabbard. It has a few minor pressure marks throughout. The wood grip plates and rivets are post-war replacements. No cracks, splits, chips or damage! The button works properly. This piece is profusely inspection stamped as one would expect. Overall this one is a decent restoration.
