    Thanks again for all your help! I would have paid $325 for it and it would be a glorified letter opener!

    I suppose the selling price is another indicator of a bad dagger.
    It should be somewhat more, IMO.........

    As has been mentioned, the over thick grip is a typical sign of a modern reproduction. Note the disparity between the grip thickness and the ferrule & the bottom of the pommel, too much difference in size. The drilled hole in the grip is a red flag IMHO as is the casting flaw on the underside of the crossguard. Speaking of the crossguard, I don't believe the 3R ever out out a 2nd model Luft dagger with a crossguard that has such an ugly eagle, wow.
