This blade, which does have the blood and honor logo on the blade, retains most all of its cross graining. The only negative on the blade is that the very tip beyond the motto, somebody scratched vertically into the blade. Though when you run your nail over, no indentations can be felt in the steel. The piece has its original leather washer. The grip shows no damage. The diamond is in excellent condition. The scabbard features original paint and the leather snap and tab are perfect.
