    Good Question Sam, Hope someone can tell you, the pitting on the hilt in the first pic looks a little dodgy but that could be corrosion that's been gleaned up, but that's just an observation i would imagine it would have some serial #'s or makers marks if it was genuine but I'm only guessing.

    Not all are marked. I do not know them well enough to tell you if it is original or not.

    Hi Sam, it is bad in my opinion.

    Note the split hanger rings, rather fat grip, the hole Eric has memtioned, poor casting to crossguard, etc.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I will say it is bad. Compared to my own that i have used for reference to your pics, your dagger lacks much detail. Almost all of the oak leaves is badly made. Rings are not soldered and hangers is wrong. I think it looks like the faker have not stuck to one model, but have made it up of two diffwerent makers. Casting of under side of hilt is very bad.
