An excellent dagger Ger.. & I'm loving the Eagle the detail is second to none. Thanks for some good snaps too. Cheers Terry.
I would be more interested getting one of those type of door steps you have Gerrit..the only thing that lands on mine is rain and ants Welcome back .
Interesting and rare to see a dual logo.
The enhancing on the hanger fittings are just outstanding!!
Im curious how a Distributor got a hold of a dagger with a Producers logo on it. Anyone care to comment..to the readers here..why 2 logos would be used and from a Distributor? I would like to know also. Looks to be a great thread. Regard Larry

That's a very nice textbook early Alcoso dagger. These distributor marked daggers don't show up very often. Nice find
Thank you Gents for the nice words, Its appreciated
Another one for the reference database
Great dagger Ger! Like these distributer marked pieces.. looks to be an early "Eisenkopf" Alcoso with the magnetic fittings? The "grip top being a bit wider than the pommel throat" is a give away for these magnetic daggers in my experience (and alot of these will show less dark patina). Could be wrong though! Congrats! Kevin.
Kevin you are spot on!
its indeed an early " Eisenkopf" (ironhead) one, both Eagle & Pommel are magnetic!
Kevin i will post my latest discovery i hope next saturday, i just bought a very rare ALC Slant in great condition
Hope it will be shipped tomorrow...
A beauty topped off with a great hanger!
