Default Kriegsmarine Dagger WKC for review...

I've had this Kriegsmarine Dagger by WKC in my collection since the late '80's.
What is the opinion on this one? is it a post war put together or a legit war time piece.
The quality of the cross guard gives me some concern which prompted me to post.

Regards,

As an aside, what would have been the lowest kriegsmarine enlisted rank that would have entitled the sailor to carry the kriegsmarine dolch?

Hi,
I believe the lowest rank was a Fähnrich, the dagger would be without a portepee. An Oberfähnrich had a dagger with a portepee.
Best,
Oleg.
