    I want to thank Kevin 1947 and Big Ned for this idea,,, see this link
    http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/dagger...dagger-195543/

    This post war dagger maker made daggers as souveneirs for GIs that were returning home and did not want to go empty handed. I have noticed a few daggers made by this company,, so this thread is for the sharp eyed collector.
    Is there any identifiable parts from other makers that you can see on what Kevin1947 posted?
    AND!!....what other examples are there with this maker logo? I have seen one other example which were on SA daggers. Below are a few pics,, to which (I make no claim to the dagger or the photos but used for reference purposes only!)
    Take special note of the guilt reserved for Honor daggers and the rough looking etching of the logo!!
    Are there any other type examples other than the Army shown and this Late SA? Regards Larry

    A friend of mine has one of the usual plastic gripped SA Dienstdolchs by this maker.

    Cheers, Ade.

    There are 2nd pattern Luftwaffe daggers out there by B&A, all that i've seen have the white grip. Looking at the Heer dagger crossguard I'd hazard an inexperienced guess at it being possibly manufactured by WKC?

    Did anybody see the 2nd model Luft dagger that Creg Gottlieb has on his site? It has a silver and gold blade engraved with a flourishing Signature o of Reich Marchall Herman Goering ! I don't think its real but I just wanted the experts to have a go at it.

    Any chance of a linky Operaman?
