The blade remains in good condition with some surface staining and a couple of minor nicks to the cutting edge and is well marked by the maker "R&C" on the ricasso. The multi-branched brass guard has very richly patined and remains tight and sturdy. The wooden hilt has lost its leather wrap and only a portion of the twisted wire is still present. The metal scabbard has survived in very nice condition with no dings and has beautifully patined as well.Overall measuring 43 7/8 inches in length. Be sure to add me to your favorites list.
