The slightly curved nickel blade is 78 cm long and is maker marked to W. BENTRUP & SHNE PADERBORN – SOEST (I have never come across this maker before in 30 years, so a rare manufacturer). There is light in and out wear, however the majority of the blade is free of wear and bright and clean.

The black enamel scabbard retains the suspension rings for hanging and small style drag. The scabbard is in very good condition, showing excellent age and the majority of the black enamel remaining. Overall length: 100 cm.
