Its not in the best of condition, have a haggle and try and get for less if you really want it !! I would have it for less, maybe $275
A bit too far gone for my tastes, but original.

A good starter though i feel, i wouldnt mind it for less !! vet bring back maybe ?
I have it's brother! Nordmark stamped E.P. & S. - Solingen. It's original far as I can tell, and if you like them a bit worn, and the price is right, I'd go for it.
Well, I try to get him for less, but then,... I can do a kind of layaway, that's no problem.
A common dagger by a common maker. The condition will never get any better. If it was me making the decision, I would wait and buy a quality one. Everyone has their own taste but I agree with Ade.

I cant say that this grip shrunk down that much but it is possible that a chunk of wood is missing from the lower part of the grip. Salty condition,, and Im sure you can negotiate a little less than the price offred,, but as Bob said you can get a decent one for a few dollars more as EP&S are very common. If you decide to go for it,, fortunately these early daggers and the type metals used will clean up to excellent. Elbow grease will be needed with Simi chrome on the blade. Regards Larry
