Always wondered what percent of the TR military budget went for bling? Nice pieces.

Very nice Heer dress dagger with knot!  Great pick up, these are very nice and well made.  Wish I hadn't sold the couple that I used to have as they make for a great display piece!

Really nice Heers dagger. The patina on the scabbard is a beautiful thing and coming from a TD vet is icing on the cake for me.
