The blade is free of nicks, chips, or active rust. The scabbard fittings show wear to the finish. The black leather scabbard remains in very good condition. The grip is tightly triple wrapped with brass wire. The metal dagger components, the pommel, ferrule, and guard, all have a darker, uncleaned patina. Overall excellent, service used condition.
