As requested (in his illiterate way), the dagger blade itself, for Mr. C.:
(Shiny, too; I polished all the 50-year-old rust and stains off with rubbing compound, Brasso and Weiman's Silver Cream -- using only a ScotchBrite Steel Wool pad... ...took for-freakin-ever.)
Total Length in the scabbard is just over 16". And it's sharp enough to slice my fingertips all to shreds; just ask Sherry. (Since I got into knife restoration six years ago, she's bought STOCK in Band-Aid and Mercurechrome).
Drawing again is at midnight, 12-21-12, the day the Mayan Long-Count Calender ends (and which gave rise to all this 2012 hysteria; but, trust me, folks, it's Y2K all over again. NO-thing is going to happen on the 21st....[except that some lucky devil or devilette is gonna take this proud old koummya off my wall)].
And thank God for that.
