    This is a late WKC type 4 made of potmetal a so called " Zinker"

    Zink eats the silverplating.

    Better look at the sale sections of this forum under Classifieds ( top bar) or at the Edged Weapons sale section of the WAF forum for a nice one….

    Depending on the maker some late daggers did not even use silver plating, instead choosing a substitute. As for zinc in general early zinc mounted daggers had a better more durable zinc. The manufacturing of the metal controlled by a guild unfortunately over time it suffered a downturn in quality. As some of the more skilled workers along with their expertise were called into military service it manifested itself not just with daggers, but also with some of the late badges etc. Best Regards, Fred
