This thing went through a waste shredder! The blade is quite damaged on one side of the blade. But all in all it's in a remarkable condition.
The investigation told me, that the EFE in the grip means: Einigkeit, Frieden, Eintracht (unity, peace, concord) and "Loge zu den sieben Sternen" (Lodge to the seven stars) on the guard.
Found out, that this is a global acting "druid"-lodge/order which was founded in 1781 in london. Still trying to investigate for more details/backgrounds...
But the biggest question for me is: why did this thing land at the local waste collection company?! Quite mysterious...
I maybe should get in contact with those "druids". Their homepage tells us, that there are different epoches here in Germany, where lodges like them were pursued seriously. For example during the "third reich" or the "German Democratic Republic".

Never heard of them before but looked them up. Seems to be a nice peacefull humanistic club. But why do they use a sword for whatever? Their seven pointed star and seven principles remember me of GoT a bit.
Today I had the opportunity to give this back to the lodge here in my city.
Did an appointment with the chairman of that lodge and could hand over my find. Was quite a short meeting.
Everything today had a mysterious touch. A villa in a very wealthy district... So I rang the bell and an aged man with suit opened the door for me and greeted me with my name.
The chairman was very courteous and well-mannered. Then he told me that there are only two possibilities why the "dagger" became lost. First is what I wrote earlier (persecution) and second one could be a theft .
I had the strange feeling that he wanted me to get out of the house as fast as possible. Offered me a "reward for the finder" of 100 EUR but i rejected... I said that I am satisfied by helping and bring it back without any ulterior motive. We wished each other a nice day and I left.
stormmaster: theres a piece out there i want but cannot afford, quite sad

ouroboros: I say we take off and nuke the whole site from orbit--it's the only way to be sure

RufusScorpius: Satellite GPS plot of Christain's property, enter into the Automatic Geometry Guidance and resurface and re-slope his entire property. Then spray it with that green seed mix from a high pressure hose. Should take 20 minutes for the whole job.

RufusScorpius: Oh man, you let slip my gimmick. And I was going to do it by remote piloting using GPS data mapping

treeslicer: Rufus, why do I get this picture of you, in armor, driving some piece of air-conditioned heavy equipment you borrowed from the local railroad, scraping Christain's lawn down to bare dirt, then scattering gravel ballast all over it?
Feb 20, 2020 23:11:27 GMT
RufusScorpius: I made you a promise I would cut your grass in armor and I fully intend to keep it. I just can't promise a time. But it's gonna happen.
Feb 20, 2020 11:28:49 GMT
christain: I think Spring is gonna come early this year, so there'll be plenty of time for mower-jousting.
Feb 20, 2020 8:46:00 GMT
christain: Come and help me MOW my grass in your Roman gear!-------
Feb 20, 2020 8:38:25 GMT
RufusScorpius: Primarily for MOW. Operator training, mechanics, track structure and geometry, hydraulics, electric, PLC, and so forth.
