This dagger is exceptionally clean. The blade retains all of the original crossgraining. There is a slight runner wear over the motto. The grip is a light pear wood and really gives the piece a great look. All the pieces fit perfectly together and the crossguard is stamped with a B. The scabbard has 100% anodizing and also has slight traces of lacquer around the fittings. All screws are intact and the ball is undamaged.
