Hello Guys,
I found this dagger at an auction at a good price (US$160), which made me suspicious.
Is it a original WKC dagger? Sorry, but I have only these pictures.
Regards,
Schmidt

Don't see any red flags. It looks like a typical WKC Army though not in the greatest condition.

This is a complete partsdagger and has nothing to do with an original factory produced WKC.

The crossguard and ferrell appear to be WKC 3rd, but in not so good condition.
It does have a nice grip, if it is in good condition. Real bummer on the blade.

This dagger should be a WKC Type 4 with a so called "Tomahawk" style guard.
The early scabbard is an Alcoso product found on Alcoso type 1 and 2 and occasionally on the earliest Alcoso type 3, the pommel is a late generic type.

I would say run Forest run!

The parts have some value, mainly the grip, so there’s a real danger of overbidding. I would listen to Ger, he knows his Armys.
