    Thank you to all for input and advice. I had found limited information on this dagger. It does not have a scabbard, all I have is the dagger. By cleaning, I meant that I used a liquid metal polish and soft cloth on the blade. That would be considered maintenance, in my mind. I have no pretensions that this is a collectible but rather an interesting piece from history. Originally I did attempt to post in the Daggers forum and somehow got in the Luftwaffe subforum.

    I just noticed my heading was changed to Heer dagger. Thanks.

    Hi Robert,

    by using a metal polisher you remove the original factory cross grain.
    That is taking away one of the most desirable features of a dagger.
    A dagger is valued alot by its blade, having no cross grain left makes it a non collectable dagger for a lot of collecters and would surely affects its price in a very negative way.

    Certainly a liquid polisher is not maintenance desired by collectors.

    Funny this post flipped between forums


    i agree that if the blade is that bad by grey spotting or pitting, then a Chrome polisher will indeed do no harm and would give it a more atractive look!
