21 1/2" blade, well forged with three narrow fullers and long false edge, crisp with light gray patina. Beautiful dark brown horn grip, checkered in imitation of European work. Knuckle bow, back spine and base segment of cupronickel (copper nickel alloy) with crisp bright finish. Original scabbard with base and throat pieces pierced to match the grip base segment. Both mounts and the retaining bands, of cupronickel with slightly richer copper content resulting in a very slightly yellower color. Classic form and a stunning example.
