Im not jumping up and down clapping my hands about the blade...being a very high ridge type..seen with late RZM types..and current repros...unless..someone else can chime in..give their thoughts..on this blade. What is supposed to represent as an early blade..is totally the opposite in graining..appearing as brushed steel.
Dagger has been opened a few times..and the scabbard covering is very recent. Not one for my collection..JMO. Regards Larry

Fake blade-fake crossgraining. The leather is of more recent application-most leather sheaths that you see, the leather is shrinking or faded with 70-80 years of age and decades of handling to it being obvious. All of which shows that the current owner is lying about it when they say that it is original to the dagger. I'm not liking the fit of the crossguard to the sheath throat either. On an early issue Model 33 that has not been upgraded to a chain sheath, the gaps and spaces should not be there. There looks to be a mixture of good parts and bad on this one. Yet another Frankenstein, in my opinion.
