Hello. Couldn't find any info on this dagger online. Please help. The handle is aluminum. The claim is that it was hand-made on the battle field. Could be a fake as well. Photos are below.

Relatively recent it's a complete 1000% postwar fake most likely from Poland - I'm reposting the images.

Looks like it was cast from a mold, a true fantasy piece.

I see these on eBay all the time. Usually have 20-50 bids, go for hundreds of dollars. Who on earth is buying this junk??? I am consistently astounded by these auctions- it is one of the worst looking fakes I have ever seen. I wouldn't be surprised to see a "Yosemite Sam"-pommeled one eventually.

Thank you everyone for advise. The man was asking $400 for this. Here is his post: https://sacramento.craigslist.org/atq/d/german-ww2-knife/6274619385.html
