Fake Luftwaffe Dagger??
I'm 99.9% certain this is a reproduction, but I've learned never to assume when you can ask here. I passed up a good variation of a nice item once for assuming.
There are a ton of things wrong with this, not the least of which is the horrible detail in the Eagle design of the cross guard. It also has a brass/gold tint to it, the scabbard quality is about as horrendous as the cross guard, and the grip ferrule is round, not oblong. I'm sure you guys can spot 100 more issues, these are just a few of the more noticeable ones. The length, with scabbard, is about 16.5", so they at least got that right
Is this a known fake, or something more modern?
I collect German Daggers.

Hi Darren, it is bad. The bulbous shape to the grip is another red flag.
