WKC Knights Head stamped TM. Gilded brass hilt fittings show almost no wear/age patina to highlights with much of the honey gold factory fire gilding remaining in the recesses of the WKC pattern eagle/swastika pommel, fouled anchor crossguard, and quillon block. The white celluloid grip shows no visible cracks or chips and is complete with tight twisted brass wire wrap as used by WKC.  Plated double-etched blade grades EX++/Near Mint showing only minor surface wear/runner marks primarily to the obverse and reverse ricasso and very minor gray speckling, but no nicks to the cutting edges.  Blade is complete with red buffer pad and retains 99% of the light gray background frosting in the fouled anchor and floral motif etch pattern.  Gilded brass lightning bolt scabbard retains approximately 98% of the factory fire gilding and lacquer. Dagger is complete with original silver heavily toned bullion portepee and hangers which grade Near MINT.
