    You have to admit, the blue is a nice touch. Gives it kind of a nice Mediterranean/Turkish appeal.

    I am not ashamed at having being fooled by some fakes went I was a beginner and even within the last few years.
    For most collectors tools like the forum have helped educate and inform. However the internet makes it tougher.
    Coming back to the hobby after years in the coin collecting community, it was found that even cheaper more common items are being faked.
    Humans have been counterfeiting everything but the kitchen sink to rip people off, can we stop it all, no. can we slow some of it down,
    yes I think we can, Reputable dealers can be contacted by other respected dealers etc. Had a gent in the new York area hawing fake and even no existent daggers. I hounded this guy that his ads are not actively appearing on the net in this area. I may have pushed him to work a new area but I did what I felt was best to try to help collectors in my area. I am not superman, but we have a small incestuous marketplace where a little effort goes a long way.

    I thought I new about what items are faked on a constant basis. luxury items collectables ect.

    The gap could be the result of the top nut being released a bit, to get less tension at the grip.
    De cleaned nut at least indicates this.
    The shape of the grip seems to fit guard, im not having to much problems with that.
    This dagger has obvious been cleaned and even de Scabbard has suffered a bit, its been sprayed with a transparant lacquer.
    I have had enough early daggers with nicotine/grease layers but nothing looks like this one.
    In certain angles it even looks as if the dirt has been put on it AFTER the polish/clean job, to make it look better.
    The rzm hanger is a later addition.

    If you like cleaned/polished daggers , well then this is the one your looking for!

    Regards,

    Axiom,

    The simple answer to your question is "NO". All bad (the K98 is appears real totally messed with IMHO)

    IMHO if you want to start a collection, you should study first. Then look here in the classifieds or buy from a reputable dealer. Lakesidetraders is highly recommended, but there other good dealers as well. Also the sponsors for the forum.

    Once you learn enough then you can venture out to shows and such.
