Scabbard is rough looking but thick leather covered with some oil. Tip is stainless and matches the sword. Fit is slightly tight. Blade is good looking covered in grease with no rust. Blade has slighest wave in edge and the two edges are a bit asymetrical bit still pretty straight for a 50$ blade. Most surprising was that when I placed the tip on the floor and bent the blade 10-15 degrees it actually sprang back. Edge is thick and rounded. Gaurd and pommel are brushed stainless,attractive but not flashy. Handle is wood with a tightly sewn leather wrap. It is all screwed together with your basic rattail tang. After seeing the spring in the blade I decided to I wanted to sharpen this sword. The blade is so thick and heavy this will require a grinder or a lot of file work. I've spent a lot of time with a grinder so thats what I did. After grinding filing sanding I was soon slicing bottles with the best of them. For a final test I chopped a 1 1/4 inch limb off of a fig tree. No form I just whacked at it letting the blade slap flat a few times to see if it could handle the abuse. The blade held up very well but did twist in its fittings. I had to add a washer to the assembly to get some extra tightness. This sword is really front heavy, good looking in a ruggeded way, and with some work can be a light to medium cutter. Lot of bang for your buck.
