Exterior sports a beautiful grip with no cracks or chips and has the original knot. Overall the dagger is very clean and comes complete. The blade has no sharpeneing and a perfect Voos stamp on the reverse. Standard filigree work on the maker mark side. On the reverse it has the Army eagle with oak leaves engraved. Very minor wear at the tip but nothing detracting. The piece will also come with original bag and hangers as it was found.
