I thank you for your information. I as received information from the Russian expert that is very qualitative fake.
I will wait when other experts will tell here the opinion concerning this dagger.
You can advise me the good dealer who can send daggers to Russia?
The biggest problem - how to pass customs into Russia.
The dagger looks like overkill in artificial aging the grip is junk and recent. A combination of key parts but still lacking in authenticity and ..... NO ... I will not say exactly what the key points are... That will give a hand to a scum bag parting these daggers together. You can't copy a classic in materials and in patina. The artificial aging is so blatantly obvious.
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!
