    Lovely dagger, Rossi. And now knowing the rocks are synthetic I can look at your blades in all their glory and not cringe

    I know...I had to put my bud Dannys mind at ease at well. Not to geek out on rocks but I have a buddy T. Hagen who is a genius, artisan & sculptor who deals in cast resins. He works with indoor hotel and outdoor water fountains, landscape and water features. He did about 15-20 mock limestone and chilton stone replicas for me so I would not scratch my stuff up. They are as heavy as stone and even have texture as he casted rubber molds from actual pieces. He can cast base paint in the rocks and then airbrush and you will never know. He is very good. Actually have him working on a simulated Wehrmacht eagle for my display above my collection.

    Wow very Nice Kirk..love the Logo .

    2 trivia questions I have not asked in awhile

    1. What is the little hook and chain thing used for?
    2. Why is there a button release on the dagger?

    Hey Larry,

    I am not sure if I will pass this trivia test but I will try.

    1) To my knowledge the smaller hanger has attached to it the: re-gain brass chain & hook. I can only assume it was for added security to enable the dagger to have another connection point to the belt assembly. Maybe to help reduce movement while being worn on uniform?

    2) The spring loaded button releases the blade locking mechanism

    I know theses buggers hung low on the tunic and got caught in doors which is why scabbards are usually dented. So I am not sure 1 or 2 have anything to do with this statement but maybe I will get an extra credit point or a free tinnie? Left over fruitcake from Christmas?

    That is a great looking dagger, I love complete rigs, as for one of larrys questions I believe the release button is to keep the blade from accidently sliding out and sinking to the bottom of the sea, glug glug glug.
