The carbon steel blade is full and undamaged, and sharp. The knife is beautifully balanced in your hand with a very comfortable genuine ebony handle, warm to the touch, riveted to the full tang which is tapered. Surface scratches and some darkening to blade consistent with vintage that do not interfere with use. No chips or cracks, no loosening to blade or handle. Ebony handle is great - just some small surface scratches/ scuffs from years of use see images.
