Looks like a nice early Alcoso 1st. Nothing wrong with that one, in fact it is not an easy dagger to find.

Thanks for the replies. The dagger has the maker's mark CARL Wüsthof - SOLINGEN. Is that correct? What is your price?. Thanks and regards

Well that maker just cranked the price up for a start. I do not think I have seen more than 2/3 early armies by this maker in 5+ years.

Tom,
Here is an enhanced picture, looks like a Holler 1st. I was close, the ACS and Holler 1st's are very similar as you know!.

Jon sure does look like a Holler 1st certainly not the crossguard you normally see on a Carl Wusthof
