It boils down to when the Kriegsmarine dagger was first designed and as Tom Wittmann quoted

Eickhorn and WKC being the closest in the same detail..yet a practicing eye..will see the subtleties .
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

To sum this up as I think everything has been said,
Small producers = Generic parts (evident on complete daggers) = Design (of generic pommel) linked to WKC by same features = WKC as being the designer and manufacturer of these generic pommels.
Small producers used generic parts because they did not have the facilities to manufacture their own parts or the orders to make it worth their while, why else would you use them. Companies like WKC, Eickhorn, Alcoso and Holler are known to have made their own navy parts hence their own individual complete unique designs seen on their navy daggers. JMO.
