The blade has professionally been restored and re-scaled. Looks super.
The scales are Tropical Yellow acrylic tapered with a faux ivory micarta wedge. This is a higher grade acrylic with superb optical clarity, excellent resisting to natural aging and heat resistance.
The blade is very clean with no rust, cracks, chips or disturbing stains.
Just a few remaining residual surface pits left around the engraving as it would have meant losing all engravingvduring the restoration. Hardly noticeable.
On the front tang it says: Joseph Wostenholm & Sons - Perseverance Works - Sheffield
