The 21 3/4 inch blade has feint etching remaining and is firm in the hilt. The hilt generally good, a little bending to the knuckle bow, not much. The fishskin grip in very good condition for its age, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The leather and gilt on brass metal scabbard is aged, only gilt remaining is that which sheathes under the sword langets; the top locket is loose (easily glued). The sword sheathes and draws well.
