Kissing Crane Stiletto

Post by alfa5069 » Fri Oct 16, 2020 11:39 pm

Hi, I got this Stiletto knife from a US seller, he sold it as Germany knife with stag handle. Is it really from Germany? Or China? What about the handle material?
Any idea?

How can I be sure? Its written Germany on the blade, but is it really made in Germany?

Here is some discussion I found by using Google.

K.C. did make a knife just like O.P. knife 20 or more years ago. O.P. knife could be an 'older' Germany/Italy made knife, or a more recent copy made in China.
If someone has an older example and posts pictures and exact measurements you could see how closely the O.P. knife matches.
An experienced K.C. collector might know if O.P. knife is the original ?

I believe the O.P.'s knife is German made. Here are four of mine;three of which have a keris blade instead of the clip point.
