Rad Hewer- pretty sure now it's not real

Article about: I recently bought this along with another dagger (the other one so far looks to be a fake, a DLV dagger). As I was trying to research these on line I came across this forum and it looks like

    I've been collecting for about 25 years, this certainly will not put me off
    I don't specialize in any one area other than edged weapons- I have quite an extensive collection, very little from WWII Germany. I have some stuff I found out later was fake, but I didn't pay much for those and I was much younger so not concerned about those. I'm also a member of the OVMS (have been for years), gonna see if I can run these by them as well and get their thoughts, too.
    Definitely won't put me off, and it looks like I've stumbled across a great forum in the process so it's not a total loss!
    Correct..Best Forum and Best folks out there that have each other's backs!

    Lol, yes he is. I told him when I got them I was suspicious, he went apeshit. He did offer me my money back, gonna see if that's still possible.

    That would be a good idea. I hope you're able to get your
    money returned. If the price was quite low for all 3 pieces,
    he probably knows they are bogus. You don't even
    have to tell him you checked around.

    Good luck - fingers crossed.........!

    He sent me a bunch of links to pages selling Rads and Luftwaffe daggers to convince me of the worth of these 2, so he fully believes they're real; and he told me to do my own research- which I said I would. I think he doesn't want to admit he got conned. Although I'm not real sure he was conned, kind of sounds like the guy who sold them to him was duped.
    I'm very suspicious of that guy, lol. He said the "Luftwaffe" dagger was one of his prized possessions, he's been collecting for 25 years, and some kind of expert but didn't know it was a DLV?!?!?! Granted, I didn't either- but I'm not claiming to be an expert either, lol.
