Thank you Eric. I suspected as much but don't want to throw this out without checking.

Any hope on the portepee?

Hello, this certain dagger is, together with a water custom dagger from the same manufacturer, shown in another forum.
BOTH are well known early FAKES.
Sorry, imho the portepee does not have the least chance, up to my best knowledge such a portepee has never been produced during the period.
Regards,


wotan, gd.c-b#105

"Never look for sqare eggs" as a late owner of an original FHH-dagger used to say.

Thanks Wotan, I was hoping you would chime in. The seller took it well.
