    Hi Birdsman....for one thing its in bad condition....and looks to be a repro. The photos are not the best..for clear detail..but IMO...a better example can be found. The crossguard looks like diecast metal. Regards Larry

    This is a horrible Frankenstein dagger.
    Looks like a LW swords pommel has married a repro grip and used a chainless old worn scabbard.
    Take Larry's advise and look for a better piece!

    Terrible fake, where can we start with this one?
    Scabbard aluminium is to shiny and the wrong colour. The leather should nicely meet and join on the edge out of sight.
    The crossguard quillion is ill defined.
    The Pommel is to Narrow at the base.
    The Grip is too ridgy and bulbous, the wire we wont even talk about.
    God knows what happened to the chain and clip??
    Grab the steering wheel and sharp left is all I can say.
    I do have a near mint Horster one of these coming up for sale so pm me if interested.
