I have also noticed that within the elvish carving, one side of the dagger has a slightly different color. The scabbard has two leather straps.
One is wrinkled on its top side. The other shows some sign of flaking on the bottom side. Perhaps this is due to age, without any leather conditioning.
Some of the stitching has comes undone on one of the straps. The top of the scabbard, on the metal part, had some marks, possibly from the knife. It comes with its plaque. The plaque is in very good condition, with only some slight marks on the edges.It comes with the Certificate of Authenticity from United Cutlery. The Certificate is only in ok condition. It has some noticeable wrinkles and a hole. I will pack it very well. It was only in its original cardboard box. The original box is only in ok condition.
