Just arrived. the sharp Blade is 1 cm. at the grip join, will take some more measurements & photos after a bit of a clean, some red surface rust. No pitting visible. It has a strong distal taper to start, slowing down quickly then slower to the point. Scabbard is well made, tho plain, there were a number of braided rings of fine rattan under the black electricians tape, couple were fairly fragile. two broken. I love it already.
Anyone know what takes black electrical tape goo stains off wood? It's been there a while.
