Overall the dirk remains in collectible condition and measures 16.5 in total length. The ray skin handle wrap is in excellent condition with the original grip wire present. The guard and spacers are nice showing minor age and wear. The scabbard, measuring 12 1/4, is in great condition. The body is comprised of leather and only has a few minor scuffs to the surfaces.
The blade measures 9, showing light wear and age with a few extremely minor edge nicks. You feel them when you run your finger over the edge.Really a great blade here that looks great in hand. The scabbard latch functions as expected. Please see the pictures as they tell the story the best. A great late war dirk ready for your collection. If you have any additional questions let me know.
