    Appreciate the helpful comments and advice! :-)

    I read that many US sellers doesn't ship to Europe to avoid problems with customs.
    Kinda expected that, why I think a Europe seller is better.

    Do you have any experience with shipping "memoralia" between countries in Europe?
    I have bought more then a few daggers in the States, to get them in Holland has never been a problem.
    What you can expect are custom taxes!
    in Holland that will be 21% of its value ( written on the box) + € 19.50 handling/clearing costs.
    I always ask if its possible to put a description on the box that says: "Wall Decoration" with a value between the $ 80--> $119,-- ( depends a bit on my mood )
    So first you better found out what your country charges for import...otherwise your first foreign dagger can turn out to be a real expensive one!

    Cheers Ger

    Denmark can be outrageous when importing a German dagger in as well, so Norway could well also be a headache. As said earlier, you'd best check with the local customs regulations and legal requirements before going ahead and trying it. You might save yourself alot of money and headache.

    Lakeside trader says he can ship to Europe without problems.
    - What do you expert think about this dagger?
    https://www.lakesidetrader.com/item.php?ID=7283
    Is the price reasonable for this quality and brand?

    There are 2 alternatives on the Classifieds on this forum:
    1. Added 2 days ago, 2350$ but has been sharpened
    http://www.warrelics.eu/classifieds/...mesfahr/cat/15

    2.This one has been on offer for a long time, looks good but why has it been on sale for so long?
    http://www.warrelics.eu/classifieds/...-hanger/cat/15

    Again, your help here would be invaluable! :-)

    Thx for the custom advice, I do (not so fondly) remember that they flog you viciously when importing items above a given price range.... :-\
    Will certainly check up on it.

    Well, I have ordered my first 2 daggers from the Lakesidetrader;
    https://www.lakesidetrader.com/item.php?ID=7283

    Also had him ship me this NSKK dagger:
    https://www.lakesidetrader.com/item.php?ID=7480

    Really looking forward to this! Found my first relic when I was 8 years old and dug the floor in an old German bunker in Norway, a live Mauser round.
    ..my mother was thrilled!-) When I was 12 I bought a Mauser bayonet from a second hand shop for ~45$. Always loved to admire the smell of oiled steel.

    In the old days before the Internet I thought the inscription R. Herder 1938 meant that the bayonet belonged to someone called R. Herder :=)
    Took me even longer to figure that the scabbard and bayonet had different producers; E. Pack & S / R. Herder.

    Slowly the mysteries have unveiled themselves, but I hope new ones will appear - despite the Internet..

    Again, thx for the help and support

    You did well Pzb!...I especially like the August Bickel,,as I collect SAs / NSKKs myself. This maker is known for its hard contours on its oak grip. A quality dagger! Regards Larry
