The reverse side has a small amount of shallow pitting... Probably buff or gently sand out.Handle scales are tight and crack free. Overall a pretty nice piece. Comes with a high quality black leather snap-closer sheath(not original) that fits it really well. If you have been waiting on one of these to be reasonably priced.. I see them only going up in price. Check out the picts and message me any questions.
