The steel blade measuring 12.25 inches in length, with a sawback spine, the finish is excellent, but there is a very slight bend to the tip. The simple wooden grips are riveted in place, perfect grip fitting.
There's a large dent in the scabbard making inserting the blade all the way difficult (last 1/2 inch). It's black painted steel scabbard which retains about 40% of its original finish, the remainder being steel patina.
