    Far as the blade it does not look period done IMO.
    This type of deep etch is what I remember on them.

    its clear to see the swastika has been put on later.
    The blade wears the early W.K.& C. logo, it has the King & Knights head, so this blade can be dated late 19Th century, or not far off.
    The fittings of the scabbard and the way they are attached are correct for this period, they match.

    It has nothing to do with the TR period.
    Its a typical Imperial one.

    Cheers,
    Ger

    Hi Eric,

    it a typical etching of an imperial dagger with the W.K.&C. logo dating back to the late 19th century/
    i Quote Wittmann who has one in stock:
    " The obverse ricasso is stamped with the trademark used around the turn of the last century being the king and knight side by side with the firm’s initials below, “W.K.&C.”.

    i own a great Kriegsmarine saber by W.K.& C. with the same logo, and that one is dated 1883-1890
    the scabbard fittings attachment, leather and etching all scream: 1883-1900

    here are the pictures of Wittmanns Imperial.

    Cheers Ger

    Heres a Pic of that logo used on this type of knife below. The Swaz threw me off as I am not sure as Gerrit says,,if this was a period or recent add on. Maybe the original owner was a party member. Not sure,, but nicely applied,, looks kind of recent as something not normally seen on these types. Im not sure if these photos or the dagger itself are his ,now that he no longer resides here,,,but still a good topic. Regards Larry
