    I think this one looks good from these pics and as I said in the original thread my personal feeling is that the blade should be gently cleaned with a light oil. IMO this could only be considered as conservation rather than the reomval of patina. It is contaminated which needs to be rectified before the blade suffers (any more) harm.

    To properly asses the dagger a few good close up shots are required, have a look at some other threads and you will see what I mean.
    I think I can see a maker mark on the blade but it could just be all the staining. Possibly WKC of solingen?

    Regards

    Hello Gentlemen
    in my opinion is it a Kriegsmarine dagger of 1938 pattern with a replacement eagle. The scabbard seems to be from the Imperial Navy dagger by Eickhorn.

    Hi guys; I think this is the thread that had the white grip HEER dagger associated with it. If it is IMO the HEER dagger looks like it has a 60's ERA Spanish backward grip on it. With the swastika up; the grips are running High left to Low right. Grips on Originals run LOW LEFT to HIGH RIGHT.

    Hello ArmyMan ...if you find the thread contact me via PM and I will move it to the correct location ( or prove that it has relevance to this thread ) so as not to further interrupt an ongoing thread. Provide a link to me and will decide the correct forum it may be related to.
