Hi dan well Il be honest.
A good one of these maker marked will set you back about £300. By the time you've spent probably £150 on a refurb and took into account it will never be worth its full amount then its probably a bad idea.
If its a plain blade (non maker) they are only worth £200 at the most in mint condition!
On low end edge weapons, unless you can do the refurb work yourself, I wouldn't bother. If the dagger has a significant meaning to you the answer to the question is completely different.
Get some de-ruster, clean the blade up yourself abit maybe, but that's about all you can do imo.
