The handle and scabbard are in nice condition and the sword is quite a large and heavy one. the original leather scabbard cover has plit down the sema but that is easily fixed. The sword comes with original company grade officers knot which also remains in good condition with much of the blue dye having now faded. CLICK ON THUMBNAL TO SEE MORE IMAGES.
