Hi Pete

No expert on daggers (or anything for that matter) so no idea if all the components (guard, pommel handle, wiring type etc) are correct for this maker but I did notice the makers mark faces the wrong way (should face the back) so this baby was at least taken apart and reassembled incorrectly at one point

Best regards

JC

I agree, a total reproduction. Weyersberg was in Solingen so that makers mark is always going to be a bad sign.

Weyersberg Berlin is a sure sign of fakery.

"Paul Weyersberg - Berlin" is a classic Spanish reproduction
