Condition: Blade & Guard retain a high percentage of their original blue finish – Blade edges have several nicks – Grip is very good with just minor marks – Scabbard retains much of the original grey/green finish on the leather, but the thread holding the seam has weakened, and the seam has split – One rivet is loose on the scabbard tip, but intact and does not fall out
