some time ago , I discovered in Beck_militaria site this naval dagger with a TM different compared with the TM usually seen on eikhorn daggers from this period.
Have you already seen such TM design??

I've seen this mark on modern produced blades being sold as period. Can't say about the dagger in question, do you have any other pictures of it?

Don't think I've ever seen a period etched back to back logo before, nor one that also incorporates the oval. The size of the logo also appears off.

John Z., ever seen something like this?

The Imperial cross guard is a fake as well.

Very weird... and beautifully aged to make it look old.

jean, they are not questioning the originality. They are saying it is manufactured after WWII was over. Although originality might be in question.
You can buy Imperial daggers made today by WKC.
