This late war first model is comprised of both aluminum fittings and steel fittings. The blade which, though it has grease on it, does rate excellent. The cross guard and pommel are done in aluminum with a very stand out copper swaz. The scabbard fittings are steel and have recessed screws, one of which is missing on the upper fitting. The chain is aluminum and where there would normally be on earlier models leather, they have merely using paint simulated the leather on the dagger.
