    Just came across this thread and honestly it's a parts dagger at best. A few reasons why.
    First off,the runes button appears to be a (Reddick) Repro and not from period,further i've never seen a real Gembruch with any roman number at the lower crossguard.Grip is also questionable. Lower scabbard fitting looks plated and not made of early nickel silver.Finally,i don't like this vertical suspension.

    I know this thread has come and gone but I have handled this dagger and actually returned it-so I thought I should give my two cents. The blade ridge is wavy in quite a few spots, and the maker mark, in hand, also demonstrates that the blade was redone in one fashion or another. Also, the grip is heavily redone, if you run your fingernail along it, black lacquer will come off. I didn't botherfiguring out what portion of the grip was redone, but much of it likely, if its authentic at all. Not a dagger you should spend this kind of money on. A slightly repaired grip corner or edge is not a huge deal, but this piece has all the "wrong" things.
