The 32 1/4 inch blade is well engraved with battle honours both sides, some patina, especially towards the tip. Firm in the hilt, the hilt with some aging / wear but generally good. The grip with areas of fishskin loss, most likely through being held; these government issued sword would have had long and arduous service lives. The grip wire appears to be all there. The steel scabbard is aged. The sword sheathes and draws a little loosely.
