Blade grades EX- showing much surface wear/runner marks with much surface crazing, but no nicks to the cutting edges. Blade is presentation personalized with a script dedication in German to “Carl Eduard”. Possibly repainted steel scabbard shows much surface crazing to black enamel. The nickel-silver scabbard fittings show surface wear/age with several minor depressions to the lower ball. The brown leather hanger grades EX showing wear/age to the leather and is complete with uncleaned nickel-silver buckle and early unmarked clip.
