    Tomaz there is more to consider, the line between a B and C grip is in many cases in the early period very very thin.
    We simply say there is a B and a C type.
    There are so many differences when you look closely that in some cases its even hard to say where the B ends and the C starts.
    Its not that black and white, like Tom says: look if the grip fits the dagger, like a Slant grip on a Höller type 3 or on a Highlift Alcoso, that simply doesnt fit.
    Look for examples here:

    Going back to my original question Ger about the time frame do you think its ok to have a type C grip on a cross guard dated 35-36. On the thread you directed me too you do say the type C is a later grip but how much later do you think.

    Tomaz lets do this conversation by PM or open a separate post, this one is about Tom's collection and i would like to keep it clean, im with Tom in this one, the B grip and the C grip were used in the same timeframe, we see the B grip appear straight after the Slants, so late '35?, some producers switched within a year, other used them longer, some shorter, so within a year most producers switched to the C grip, putting it into a timeframe 1936-->and up
    Just like Voos used 3 different logo's on their tapered tangs within 1 year, they switched a lot in those early years.
    Please let this reply be the last one about the grips.
