    A widow game me this WKC dagger. Her husband was in WWII. I have done research, but I can't find anything about the clear grip. Does anyone know that this grip is original? Anyone know the time period? Any other information about this would be helpful!

    It is a Kriegsmarine dagger with post war homemade grip.

    I agree.
    Either that or a capture dagger with a theatre made handle out of 'plexi glass' discs.
    Maybe the relatively fragile original handle cracked at some point in time - either during or after the war.
    There are many examples of Allied theatre made knives/daggers with these 'see-through' handles.
    Some using a blade from a capture or Allied production knife, others fashioned out of crude but most likely effictive theatre made blades as well.

    It is very sad to look at hardly damaged dagger. Now I must look at Kriegsmarine dagger collection thread by Danny for some smile.
