    Default HJ Leader dagger fake or real?

    My first post here. The item of interest is pictured below and those are the only pics I have. The red flags to me are 1.) its excellent condition and 2.) the eagle resting directly on the decorative band below it (on the scabbard). I'm aware that the case is new and it is advertised as such. Let me know what you guys think! My wallet is in the hands of this forum now. Thanks!Click image for larger version.

    Hi Jtrew welcome to the forum.....
    1. save your money when someone wants to sell you high priced item with only 3 photos..its not worth our time and aggravation. This forum is not a validation service !
    2. The HJ leader is an excellent repro..see this thread here on a closer study. HY Leader opinions. - GermanDaggers.com
    3. The wooden box I like very much. Very well crafted and recent made.
    Regards Larry

    The case is indeed a modern craftsman made piece, by Skipper Greenwade of Crosby TX. Skipper makes beautiful customised cases for display of edged weapons. Shame to see a fake dagger with this nice case.

    The case would be worth more ! Skippers craftmanship can exceed at some points that of a mint SA dagger. He brings some of his wares to the shows..and they are a pleasure to look at. Regards Larry

    Would anyone happen to have futher infomation on this 'Skipper Greenwade' of Crosby, TX? I reside all but 30 minutes away from said location and would very much like to commission him in building some pieces for my display...the craftsmanship is simply stunning. Thanks guys!

    Go check out Mr. Wittmanns latest video from the SOS show, he has a chat with Skipper and shows off some of his work!
