    Default Opinions needed on a KVKII

    Hello friends, i have received 2 more KVKs. The first and the 3rd in the line. The middle one has been discussed in another thread about a month ago.
    Both 1st and 3rd are unmarked. My worry is if the 3rd one is an original examine. Compared to the rest of my KVKs it seems not to be good IMO. It's slightly smaller, lighter and much thinner. You can see the differences compared to the other 2 easily with the pics provided.
    Thanks in advance.

    In the close up photos you can tell which is the 1st and which the 3rd as the 2nd can be seen on the right and on the left respectively.

    Can it be bent by gentle finger pressure?

    Hi Adrian, no it's a hard metal. It cannot be bent even if pushed with both hands.

    Ok, I might be being a bit thick here and can't figure out which cross we're talking about exactly - so just for my benefit can you post front and back shots of the cross in question please?

    I don't see any red flags Chris. There were so many of these awards made by many different manufacturers and many different materials there is bound to be variations between them. I'll check mine tomorrow and see if I can see any differences.

    Thanks for your opinions guys. Glad to hear that it's a good example. It sure looks like tombak.

    IMO the best KVK is the mm1. Very thick and heavy construction.
