    Lots of threads on these DEMAG Crank-Handle type daggers...A quick search should help.

    I don't study these. But it looks odd. If anything, heavily cleaned (of course the frog is not correct)
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    This has been bead blasted and has lost a lot of it's value, IMO.

    The blade has been bead blasted as well to remove any rust.
    Here is what it should look like.

    I agree 1000% with that. That grayish silver finish I have seen a many of times after bead blasting steel.
    What a shame.

    The fit of the catch looks hinky to me. They have made such good copies for years it is hard to tell without close scrutiny by a well-trained eye. Looks like it had a bath in Evaporust to me, but the question is whether that was done to remove new rust traces, to pass it off as original.
