Wire wrapped leather grip also about perfect with just a couple of very light, really negligible, finish cracks. Scabbard excellent with smooth dark patina and just some scattered very light surface rust, minor. Dents on both sides just above the lower ring mount and just above the drag, no breaks or cracks.
