I see what you mean, but I don`t think it comes from sharpening. The hole upper edge has certain marks but I can`t explain where they come from.
I will try to make a picture that shows it better.

On the other side there are similar scratches, but not along the edge:

do you think it could result from dirt in the sheath? If so, how could I get rid of it?

In one of the photos it appears the burnish is gone. I am wondering if there was some heavy polishing done on the blade. That would explain both - the lack of burnish and somewhat uniform angled light scratches. I do not think the light scratching would not be at that angle from anything in the sheath.
Just my thoughts.

Looks like someone tried to clean it with steelwool and scratch the finish.IMO

An exceedingly rare beast. It certainly looks very fine. A rare thing like this requires a hands on by an expert to authenticate. Likely why you are not getting many posts here.

Guess you`re right.
But I didn`t really need someone to tell me weather it`s authentic or not.
I`m not a collector, I didn`t buy the dagger,
I inherited it. What Id like to know is what you guys think about the condition of the piece as far as you can tell from my photos.
Since it is kind of my duty to take care of the dagger Id like to know how I should treat it, if I should oil it or clean it.

By the way I don`t think it`s a good Idea to keep the posts that contain detailed information
like the length of the inscription. since there are so many fake ones out there you don`t really want to make it that easy...

Agree with lakesidetrader, hands on and good magnifying glass would be necessary to make a best judgement.
