Default Apparently WKC Army for review.

Hi

As far as I can see it looks like WKC with typical cross guard. What do you think? Anything wrong with it? Portepee might be later added since it show a lot less wear. Also what do you think about the grip? Does it look weird or is it just me?

Cheers!
Niki

IMO dagger itself looks like original WKC 4. type, but scabbard screws looks odd for these type. (Two screws?)

Thanks! Yes it sure looks like it has a pair of round headed screws. Went through some pictures of WKCs and few of them seem to have this kind of screws with this kind of scabbard. However the cross guard seemed to be different on those ones. Sure thing I'm not an expert but based on what I read this cross guard was used for quite a long time from 36-42 maybe? Am I completely wrong?

Scabbard should have 1 screw for this crossguard IMO. And the type 1 WKC scabbard had 2 screws, with flat heads.
