Hello collector fellows! Has anybody of you already seen a blade marked WKC army dagger with a middle/late (peaked leaf) ALCOSO pommel?
I am aware that firms did exchange parts but to my best knowledge ALCOSO did hold their origin parts in house.
Thank you for each opinion/comment, regards,

Addidional (bad) pics from pommel and eagle.
Ist just for discussion out of my interest to learn.
Could this be a WKC eagle or is it an ALCOSO eagle?
Again thank you, regards,

Wotan,
I would be surprised to see that pommel / fittings matched to a WKC marked blade. The cross-guard is Alcoso also. Sounds to me like somebody swapped the blade out?.
As you say, the ACS fittings are unique in shape and design, to the point that matching the parts to grips from other manufacturers is obvious. In my opinion, ACS did not share parts.

I agree with Degens, In my experience Alcoso did not share parts, at least not the ones they produced..Kevin.
