I agree. They are pretty scarce daggers all things considered. Not many made to began with combined with a 100 years of attrition. In nice condition they are really well finished attractive knives

My best somewhat educated guess is that it dates from the later 1920s- early 1930s. My problem is that I do not recall the exact year Ajack began production, but this would date from the first year...
