    Default Heer dagger original Gustav Spitzer?

    Can you please help me determinate originality at this dagger? Its unmarked with a quite good blade and nice details. A good collector friend of mine think its a Gustav Spitzer, but as far as I have understand, its a maker that usually mark his items? Could it be right anyway? Or could it be an WKC? His judgment is (including others), the gross beak on the eagle and its very carefully made details over all.

    Hi Korgossen, I don't know alot about daggers, just giving my opinion since no one else has yet. Appears to be a typical WKC manufacture to me. Give the dagger guys alittle more time to repond.

    looks to me like a type A generic crossguard used by many producers but as they are often mistaken with later WKC, i will have a little look and see,

    It does appear to be generic Type A. See wardaggers.com - German Army Dagger Crossguard Makers Reference for illustrations.

    That said, it's a very nice looking dagger. (drool, drool)

    just checked out in the books and this is a generic, the beak on the WKC follows thru with the forehead but the generic actually has a forehead like the example shown above, hope you can understand my explination and hope this helps,

    You did a great job explaining Ronnie. I just looked it up again, and you are 100% correct. The top of the WKC beak is almost straight across from the tip to the back of the head. Exactly as you say, the generic has a forehead. I love this forum, I have so much to learn.
