    Question NEED HELP Luftwaffe dagger pommel and crossguard

    Hi to everyone!
    Dear friends, for this time I need your valuable opinion about his Luftwaffe dagger pommel and crossguard. Both seems good to me, pommel has some visible handwork on the top - but really, now I´m not sure if they are authentic... Please, if you have some opinion and experience with this type of pommels and crossguards leave a comment.

    I try to post more and better photos soon, because this parts are not mine

    Regards Peter

    I took this photo from a great collector and contributor to the forum..here is his Crossguard eagle..which shows more defined lines and a tough looking eagle compared to the crossguard above. The Pommel lacks any pebbling or detail from what i can see. I would lean more to a cast fake commonly found in cheap knife shops...but JMO. Need more eyes on this. here is the pick below from a great contributor......I wonder who he could be?

    hahaha Larry, crossguard which I post looks very ugly, but it can be authentic - my (and also Danny´s) crossguard made by W.K.C. is real killer! My main focus is Army officer dagger, Luftwaffe is only nice addition, so sometimes I ´m confused with some Luftwaffe daggers.
