Hi Ullergard....from what I can see the guard and grip are WKC..which on the grip wire is the springy type..seen on a few other Producers..but also seen on WKC grips.
The Pommel is the generic type or Eickhorn with all 3 acorns facing upward towards the swastika. I cant tell the size of the Pommel swaz as the Eickhorn would be larger..and the photo angles do not give the best view. Im leaning on Generic ( wait for other opinions )
The scabbard is generic IMO ans is also seen being married with WKC examples..having the 2 side screws on scabbard...which WKC used 1 screw on the ring carry side of scabbard. ( See Tom Wittmann example on pg 169 & 180..of his Luftwaffe reference )
Not used to seeing a plain blade type with WKC fittings. IMO a subcontractor...with the use of WKC fittings. Wait for other opinions.
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

All generic and widely used parts.. Hard one to put a maker on! Best, Kevin.
Thank you Larry and Kevin for your inputs
I agree with both of you generic parts..
I dont Think that Eickhorn ever made a peppled pommel,
So i would go for wkc on that.
And just a little picture of the dagger
