The blade is a machine manufactured type and has a glossy blued finish. The blade is 6 5/8 long. The blade does show some draw marks and a bit of wear to the central spine.
The tip is perfect and all of the crossgraining remains under the finish. There is one tiny nick that can barely be felt or seen along one edge. You can see this nick in photo 11. The England side of the crossguard is slightly bent, but this isn't detrimental to the knife. The handle, crossguard, pommel, and nut all show signs of wear, age, carry, and patina, but look just right.The top side of the crossguard is marked England and the handle is marked with an arrow proof and the number 2. The leather scabbard is complete with metal tip.
The tip shows wear, age, and surface rust. The leather scabbard shows heavy age, and the frog is very floppy.
As is typical, the elastic band is roached and broken. The knife fits nicely in the scabbard. This will make an excellent piece for display or carry. This knife has a great blade that you will love!
