Simply "You see three fiery daggers" would require you to sacrifice the 
object's description on the ground .. so you never see "A dagger made of 
fire crackles mysteriously here." if there was more than one. I suppose 
it all depends on how much you value those descriptions. Leaving the 
description that the author intended is more important, IMHO.
