The blade is bright and shiny no scratches or marks. The guard is like new bright. The stacked leather handle looks new bright and reflective.
The brass designer plate pommel is bright and shiny with the makers mark clearly visible. The leather original sheath is in very good condition with all the rivets bright and all the stitches. The sheath has the squared off end with the original laces. This a used knife and a very collectable knife.
