What did you pay for it?

IMO if it is authentic it is not worth anything because the key part of the dagger is the condition of the blade which is horribly degraded.

That blade is so bad..it would be hard to judge authenticity.
Something to think about is the condition of the blade is opposite condition of the grip and crossguards

1. Did someone put together this dagger?
2. or did someone try to give a little life of beauty to the ugly side of this dagger.

Hard to discern authenticity with this one..but Ed Wustoff did produce Rohm inscription honor daggers.

Regards Larry

Thanks Larry ,

no doubt on the authenticity of this wreck , comparition with 2 other daggers from Ed.Wüsthof are confirming that point but my goal was how give a better look in spite of
the steel degradation . I just wanted minorate the damage on the blade without to loose the engraved dedication.

That is a shame this almost certainly is a legit blade to, a prime example of the elements and time taking their toll. Grip fit looks good its gau marked and has nickle silver fittings, no way youd be able to fake the inscription to look like that on that wreaked blade. Id say leave it as is, its still worth something, make a xheap display box, its still a piece of history.

This alteration may occur to all blades due to forgery problems even with famous makers as

C.Eickhorn . My fear is the general and progressive "pox" in our collections !

Seppi, unfortunately, there is little you could do with the blade. The only thing that could be done is to abrade it with something such as sandpaper, emery cloth, etc. Even then, you would have to work carefully around the inscription, motto and maker's mark. After all that work, the blade would still look like a mess, maybe even worse than it does now. It would be impossible to polish between the lettering and have it look right, at least by conventional means. If I owned it, I would leave it as is, as a relic.

Hello and thanks Grumpy for your advices .

Will try this mecanical solution and also an electrolytic one (as for disrusting).

Anyway I guess this "Damast effect" will however remain ...
