Switchstix can upgrade degraded weapons if you bring him the things he wants.

The first upgrade will require:

Fee: One Hundred Byne Bill x4

The Relic Dagger is a drop from Dynamis - Windurst. The Cantarella can be made by a Veteran Alchemist. Trade the four items and payment in Byne Bills to Switchstix and he will upgrade it to a Malefic Dagger. You will need to wait till after Japanese midnight.

Switchstix says that beastmen enjoy the weapons we make and so wants you to bring him some of them so he can sell them to others.

The second upgrade will require:

Fee: Montiont Silverpiece x14

Trade the four daggers to Switchstix. He will upgrade the Malefic Dagger to the Dynamis Dagger. This will take about 1 week Earth time.

The third upgrade will require:

Fee: Lungo-Nango Jadeshell x61

The Attestation drops from the notorious monster Quiebitiel in Dynamis - Beaucedine. Trade attestation to Switchstix and he will upgrade your Dynamis Dagger to the Batardeau. The Batardeau will allow you to use the special weapon skill Mercy Stroke, but only in Dynamis areas.

The fourth upgrade will require:

Fee: Ten Thousand Byne Bill x1

The Ornate Fragment is obtained from the Animated Dagger in Dynamis - Xarcabard.

Trade the Batardeau, the fragment, the Necropsyche, and the currency to the blank space at (L-10) in Sanctuary of Zi'Tah to receive a cutscene, your Mandau and 30 One Hundred Byne Bills.

I've heard of some Dynamis linkshells that sponsor one relic weapon at a time, eventually allowing multiple members in each Dynamis shell to have a full relic. IMO, as long as you dont recruit greedy people, or people of the jealous-type, it could work well. I think doing it this way would be better than letting currency randomly drop, because it improves the overall power of your dynamis linkshell. As well, if its an active linkshell, each member can eventually get one (if they are patient enough).

-alltogether you have to pay 17900 currency fees.
-at a price of 50k each, that's 895.000.000 gil.
-you get 3000 currency (150M) back, when you finished, so the total costs (only for the fees) are 745.000.000 gil.
have fun.

O.o 61x LN jadeshalls!!! thats like 50,000,000G

On Caitsith, 1 Jadeshell is going for ~3-6 Million Depends on who is buying them. So, if you are going to be buying all your 'shells for the 3rd Upgrade, you are going to be "shelling out" 183-366 Million. Then you will have to get 10,000 Byne Bills plus items for the 4th upgrade...needless to say, it's an expensive dagger. But if you look at the Screen Shots from KI, it's worth it...
this quest is impossible to gauge
