    Default Help with my fs dagger

    hi guys ive just bought this FS dagger and wanted an opinion on it. i was under the impression that it was post war...(hopfully not a repro)
    my dad works with metal work alot and has said its high quailty heat tempered steal that has been sharped very profesionaly as with the blade treatment to get the blueing.
    its stamped william rodgers shefield england on the hilt...in the normal place. no other marking. the blade end is slightly bent often seen with opening bullbeef tins and so on, but not snapped.
    there is almost no gap between the ricasso and the hilt leading to the tang. it is very sharp.
    the handle has no brass wash coming through the paint, and it weighs 215g which lead to me to believe its post war.

    the scabbard seems to be post war. with some one re stitched a piece of elastic into the top section.

    any thoughts would be great
