The knife is excellent condition overall. The blade has been extremely lightly sharpened in a few spots but does retain a lot of factory edge. The original chrome blade finish is almost completely intact and only has a few tiny specs of discoloration and micro scratching here and there. The genuine stag handles have beautiful grain and are crack and chip free.
The guard is tight but has some light cleaned oxidation in a couple spots, and the tang has some light cleaned oxidation and discoloration. The leather sheath is nice and supple with no cracks and only minor surface wrinkling and marks, but it does have one tiny slice/ jab mark in the back.
The stitching is completely intact. The strap snap is intact and working. The knife measures 8 1/2" overall, and the blade is 4 1/2". In picture three in the stag below the CASE logo and to the right, there is one possible very tiny imperfection in the stag, which could possibly be a tiny crack, scratch or part of the grain.Either way it's tight and really hard to see, just figured I would mention it because I didn't notice it before. There appears to be two not one of these imperfections next to each other, still minor but worth mentioning.
