Constructed of celluloid over wood the grip is in almost like new. around the grip are metal channels that hold decorative spun wire tightly wrapped. The back strap on the grip displays an oak leaf and acorn design. There is some minor wear to gild near the top but nothing that really detracts from the true beauty of this sword. Moving on to the 'p' shaped hand guard it too has been tooled with with an oak leaf and acorn design. As we move down the hilt, we finally come to the crossguard. On both sides are acorns that run the entire length. Centered on the obverse is the shield with oak leaf while the reverse is blank.
