Hello, artificial ivory grips, seldom to be seen and used during the period by few firms are not "fake"! Imho they do add a little to value like these "glass" or artificial amber grips. But also imho they have to be absolutely flawless. I would guess about 10% premium.

Thanks Wotan I appreciate I don't understand the "fake" comment Luftbud ......lol artificial ivory grips were an option offerred by some firms at the time of purchase. They are NOT real ivory of course but they are period and original to the dagger. In NO way do they lower, drop or decrease the value of such an optioned dagger. cheers and best regards, Ryan
