    Likewise. I didn't pay much for it at all. So I am not worried on the money! Just curious.

    A late comment on a dead thread, but worthwhile raising the red flag again. This is another of the "Gottieb Hammesfahr, Solingen Foche" fakes, (or reproductions if we are being polite). This one, as others out there has been aged to try and make it look 100 years old. They are on sale in unaged condition at various knife and sword retailers.
    I found one today at "Kult of Athena" as "German trench knife" on sale at $59.95. Maker is said to be Universal Swords, but could be sourced from Deepeeka or Windlass in India.

    Dead threads are never too late to reply to which always adds authenticity and truth.

    Years ago I remember walking past tables where they had batches of the thread starter knives on display. Still fairly fresh from wherever they were imported you could smell whatever it was they used to tan the leather from 20 (plus) feet away. Best Regards, Fred

    IMO a aged Fake, both... the scabbard and the dagger. Take a look of originals for a comparison.
