This rare maker SA dagger is in extremely nice condition with most of the original crossgraining still present. There are a few minor spots, but it has not been cleaned since I received it. Grip fits tight to the crossguards and the scabbard has about 90 percent of the original lacquer. Does have some freckling on the front, but nothing to detracting. Fittings are nice with only slight bending to the lower ball. Comes with the original three piece hanger as a nice bonus.
