    Default Heer Dagger - No Maker - Fake?

    Hey everyone. I'm seriously considering buying this dagger for $400 USD. I know these have been reproduced in the past. Based on the pics, does anyone see any red flags? Is the price right? No maker on the blade. Thanks for the help!

    I'm no expert on these but this one i do not like. The grip just doesn't look right to me.
    Dont take my opinion as an experts because i have no experience in these.
    Good Luck!

    Hi DSF...I see no issues with this dagger as there are unmarked dagger blades. From the photos you posted your dagger appears to be ok. Wait for some other opinions also. Regards Larry

    I agree with Larry, a generic dagger using a 'B' type crossguard and 'C' type grip.

    I don't see a problem with this dager either. The grip looks very similar to my Alcoso.

    HI DSF, There is one that just posted in the classifieds for around the same price, just as nice and it has a maker! just giving you some food for thought.

    Looks ok from what I can see, it is fitted with Generic type "A" fittings and a galalith or milk stone derivative grip. ( different to the normal Trolon material ). The fact that this dagger has what looks to be pot metal fittings, the cheaper alternative galalith grip and an unmarked blade would suggest that the dagger was assembled very late in the period.
    To the advanced army dagger collector this piece would be considered a little bland but the blade looks to be in good condition and the grip type is not that common.........$400 sounds about right to me.

    I just traded a no named dagger like this for $250 credit on a battle flag. . $400 seems a tad steep . ID try to haggle a bit down..but I'm tight with cash..I'm married! Also, it doesn't have the hanger or portepee. However, it isn't denazified. Although, I , myself, prefer the gold/yellow grip.
