Blade has a sizable nick (see 5th pic) and a few small nicks throughout (see pics) but remains quite sharp. Handle looks to be original or otherwise very old. It has some chunks missing from butt but otherwise in excellent shape and features outstanding, rich patina. It is locked into head nice & tight with ZERO play/wobble. Fantastic example! Ready to use or proudly display!! See pics.
