Hi Scot, nice daggers, Horster is favorite! Please throw away your reproduction scabbard from unmarked example! It is not very difficult to find real one... There are a lot of reproductions of late war produced daggers on market, so be very careful! Dagger look good to me, so I hope it is authentic...
Thanks for showing your dagger to us!
Hi Scott welcome to the forum...I whole heartedly agree with Peter...you could cause grave financial damage to the blade..by marrying it with a recent copy. It may fit well..but blind dates are 50 /50..in this case..this blind date of a recent scabbard is
90/10..and not in your favor. Finger nails on a blackboard is what Im feeling right now
Peter,, is one of many of our top Heer dagger specialists...stick around for awhile read through some of the other threads .... and the education you get here will fit you perfectly.........George Zimmer said it best.....
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

Thanks for the info on the scabbard guys. I'll keep the dagger seperate then as it has no runner marks and truly excellent cross grain. Regards Scott.
Looking over the unmarked dagger, Peter is bang on, on the repo scabbard but looking at the grip there seems to be a perfect straight line running down the grip like a seam ? also the pommel just does not look right.
I like your Horster.
