Blade is in MINT condition with all burnishing. Piece is double proofed both RZM and maker. Plating on cross guards is near perfect with some very minor edge wear on reverse. No damage to grip, which is a beautiful reddish color. Scabbard is superb. Reverse of chain which is properly NSKK marked. All plating intact with thicker throat and some light crazing to paint, otherwise it is a gem.
