This one is for you guys who like variant grips! The scarce handle is hardwood under paint and finished with a double stranded wire. It really speaks to the period as manufacturers were scrambling try to get production out while being squeezed for raw materials. The result is many variations that collectors do so love to see. I've seen one or two of these over the years. This displays the cracks and paint chipping as most do from years of temperature and humidity cycling. Personally I like the paint loss as it reveals the wood underneath. The silver plated aluminum hilt is completed with nice fittings that have all patinaed to a nice black! Klaas stamped blade is a fair example showing age and a bit of a wave near the tip. Exc Scabbard is a dent free example with 1 side screw missing. No signs of abuse. Comes with a nice portepee.
