    I purchased this German army dagger today and noticed that you can see a line running down the handle from when it was molded. I have not seen this on a dagger handle befor, is it normal to see this?
    Thanks

    Default Possible fake German army dagger

    I purchased Thai German army dagger today, but after taking it apart due to the blade being on backwards, I am having serious concerns about its authenticity. Please let me know what you think.
    Thanks

    After looking at this dagger more I now believe it is real, I am mainly worried about the grip, which I have included better pictures of.

    Did the dagger come with a scabbard? I am no dagger expert but I will tell you that you need to take good, clear pics of the dagger (put together) in natural daylight so the details become more apparent, so the guys can provide some assistance in regards to authenticity.

    Thanks for your response, I have included better pictures of the dagger assembled. I have a good feeling that this dagger is real. The main concern I have is the grip.

    At first glance, the dark finish on the dagger seems to be consistent with many other late war manufactured WKC daggers (including one I used to own). As for the grip, I have never seen one with a seam like that. These of course are just my observations and am open to other opinions from more experienced dagger collectors, as my main area of collecting is headgear.

    If better pictures are needed of any part of the dagger, please just ask and I will try to post them.

    Default Dagger real?

    More pictures of the dagger. I noticed that the pommel seems to have two seems from where it was molded, is this normal?

    Hello W2MCollector.. i have been watching your thread..and have to thank you for all the possible photos you have taken, which will help greatly with our Heer collectors to give you the best answers to your questions.

    The grip should not have an extreme seam line which is highly uncommon even for the late production daggers. The fittings are authentic..and will leave the blade and the chiseled down tang to the more experienced. Im not too comfortable with the rainbow due to the heat used while forging the tang.

    check out this link below..that is pinned at the top of this forum.

    wardaggers.com - German Dagger Reproduction Awareness

    click and drag your mouse of the far right example in the link..the photo will rotate for you..and you will also see the exposed grip seam deemed a reproduction

    Check out the over all below..and study the rest of the details on the other fittings

    Heer Dagger Reference Tools in Identifying and collecting.

    Wait for Gerrit ,,dr73..Tom Kendal or Heers 68 to chime in while you study the links I provided.
