The blade remains very sharp and in original untouched condition. Its spine is unusual in that it is flat where many of the type known have a raised medial ridge running through to the top. There are light incised lines running along the top faces of the blade that end about 18cms short of the tip from which small curved incised lines continue in various groupings.
The scabbard is a simple timber that has been lacquered in black with red highlights to the edges and within the lacquer.
Its original suspension baldric is present and is bound in a ceremonial manner for hanging.
