    I collect FS daggers but have never known a lot about this variation , I am sure there might be other members with more knowledge , or you could possibly email Roy shadbolt at royshadbolt@me.com , he runs a FS website located at >> Home

    I don't like this one.
    The shape of the handle is all wrong. Reminds
    me of the fakes that popped up on ebay a couple
    years back. The etch looks wrong also.
