    If you look closely you will see the gap only appears on on side of the guards, both top and bottom guards. It will be down to natural skrinkage. All depends on the wood used and how it has been stored over the last 70 odd years. The odds are the nut has been loosened and the grip moved. Carefully undone it and move the grip over to centralise the gap on each side. It will look much better and be far less noticable.

    Nice original dagger Luke.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Dean, but i did notice the gap before i got it and it is skrinkage of the wood, and this dagger has never been in another collection.
