    Default Eickhorn Dagger

    Hey! Have an opportunity to purchase this dagger. I'm looking for help from you in deciding how much to pay for it and what condition it's in. Seller told me it has a "minor" crack on handle and "minor wear" on blade. Any remarks/suggestions HIGHLY appreciated! Thanks! Click image for larger version.

    I saw that on the facebook post by the Justin kid. Depending on the price it varies, you can see the heavy wear and scratching on the bottom. Like i said it all depends on the price, it looks good but the heavy scratches would deter me from buying it.

    Looks like the tip of the blade has been re shaped !

    The blade has almost certainly been reground. Looks like it's been crudely sharpened as well. It would not be for my collection.

    To be honest in this hoby you can get quite a varied collection if you dont go for the top items.
    Its all up to money at the end of the day.Some people only collect ground dug for the cost while others like worn.Some want it in its original wrapper with a bow tied to it.
    I like a bit of both.As a working item i dont mind a sharp one ,or worn insignia,but not a dress one.It still is a fine piece IMO.Looks all original.Down to if it fits into your collection and bank ballance.
    I would put it at about £300 pounds maby less.
    Regards Pete

    If you look at the blood groove line compared to Neds correct image can see that the blade has been extremely shortened. Dont waste your time or money on a lesser example as this..although it appears to be authentic..but that shortening is not hard to miss at all. Thank you for posting this dagger and Thank you Ned also. Hard to believe someone had to do this to this dagger
