    Nice early Eick. Your crossguards are AR marked internally. The serial # on the crossguard certainly adds interest but most likely untraceable.
    I would suggest you not store this around humid fish tanks. That might be the worse possible location...

    I was not happy when I found it in the shed It had been there about 3 years, the blade survived because it was well oiled.

    I do not normally suggest 'monkeying around' with these, but if you
    are careful - remove the handle, sparingly apply wood/carpenters
    glue to the inner surfaces and then wrap the grip with elastic
    bands overnight - the large crack will be repaired nicely.
    Any residual glue can be wiped off with a damp cloth
    before it has set.

    The crossguard rust stains can be removed while they are off
    with some metal polish/creme and a soft cloth,
    if used sparingly as well........

    I, agree with steve but you need to make sure the wood hasnt shrunk otherwise trying to push the pieces togetrher could break the wood completely ,next get a sleeping bag and put your missus in the shed for a couple of hrs and see how she likes it LOL

    I was going to sack the wife when I discovered my dagger in such a state, but after calming down I thought who's going to cook my meals do the cleaning etc.

    I have looked at the handle without stripping it down, if I squeeze the sides where the crack is there is no movement at all, what do you think.
