No maker.  Although unmarked, this dagger exhibits all of the textbook features associated with Voos produced double-etched blades:  Impressive etch motifs, contrasting frosted panels, 2nd pattern Luftwaffe eagle with laurel sprigs, and heavy nickel plating.  Aluminum hilt fittings show light surface wear with excellent detail to the WKC pattern pommel with pebbled background surfaces and crossguard with relief-style oak leaves featuring left-leaf-over-right-leaf motif on the upper surface of the quillons.  Off-white, plaster filled, celluloid  grip shows only minor surface wear with no cracks or chip and is complete with twisted wire wrap.  High quality, plated, double-etched blade grades EX+/EX++ showing  faint runner marks with a few  small specks of lifting near tip, but no nicks to cutting edges. Etched panels retain 100% of the light gray background frosting and blade is complete with dark blue/black leather blade buffer pad.  WKC pattern, steel scabbard retains much of the original factory gray finish with one tiny depression to lower left edge of shell. Scabbard suspension bands show superb detail to the oak leaf motif with pebbled background surfaces and a single, side-mounted retaining screw as found on WKC produced scabbards.  Nice example of a 2nd model Luftwaffe dagger with Voos pattern double-etched blade. EX++
