Railway &Water Protection dagger/letter opener
You will see by the title that I dont think this is the real thing. My question is are the blade and crossguard original parts paired with repro parts to make this up? At any rate it makes a good spacefiller/letteropener (not that I anticipate owning a real one!!)

Here are the parts in question.
Hi Steve..Im liking it alot. ......and I would value more opinions on it.
You say " letter opener" ...I would say " Dagger Salesmans Miniature " .
Could you place it next to a ruler..or something significant in size to help give the viewers here a depth of perception on what the size could be?
I am leaning on this being a miniature..and if this the case..this "letter opener" could be worth about $1000. I do have a request if you may..is to take a close up pic of the tang threads..I am seeing some discoloration..and want to eliminate the possibility of a recent forge process..leaving that rainbow effect in the steel.
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

Too late to worry about grey hair!!! I realize it is a made up dagger but my question, is it an original Generic A crossguard and a Tiger blade. Seems to me it is.
The Makermark and blade looks fine to me, the crossguard looks fine too.
Here to compare my Generic A triple dagger post ( Tiger will be dagger Number 90 in our new Heer dagger book)
