Handles are almost always natural wood & antler materials. I have not used, carried, sheathed or sharpened this knife. It has been displayed, and held by me a few times, but is in otherwise "excellent to like new" condition. The blade looks to be in excellent condition with a couple of minor spots and some fine lines/scratches unsure if this is from original grinding, prior sheathing or prior use? The knife appears to have the original maker edge.
The handle is in excellent condition. Wonderful grain to the maple. Stunning silver wire inlay work.
The sheath also looks to be in excellent condition with minor to moderate storage wear. Owned and displayed by an adult collector in a smoke free home.
