The wooden grip is in good shape , the wire wrap is broken and loose , and the cord wrap is mostly intact - but there are only remnants of the leather left. The quillion is bent slightly forward as was common practice at the time Near the tip there is some light rust and some light pitting starting and it should be addressed soon - blade is bright except in those areas There are 7-8 light blade strikes and this saber appears to be either an unmarked S&K or a C&J due to the quality of the blade and the brass parts.
