Gentlemen.
It is not enough to say that this dagger is no good. We must point out Why it is no good. The purpose is to educate fellow collectors.

Probably the worst fake that I've ever seen so far.

I, for one, am not inclined to assist the fakers with detailed information so that better fakes can be put on the market and take advantage of new collectors. NPEA daggers are costly. Pick up Ron's book and learn to identify the real from the fake. That's why these books are written. wink

I agree with your principle there. The knowledge to detect fakes is a valuable commodity. But if I as a collector should invest in a book, why wouldn't a conman who is investing thousands in materials, tools and dies, also not buy a book? That said I am frequently amazed at how a faker can spend so much time on a fake dagger, but miss something so obvious such as wrong screw positioning.

By the way, I have invested a considerable amount of time and money building up a reference library on the subject, and always advise burgeoning collectors to do the same.

Knowledge is power. Buy the books. Luckily, on NPEA Daggers there are so many small details and construction details I don't think the copies will ever get it right.
