They've arrived. the wood grip one is junk, the guard was welded to the blade and the join riughly ground. If the blade were any good, it's not now. Off to the oops corner in the 8th circle. I think somone made a 'trainer' out of the blade. Too much effort to cut off the mess and remake a tang to fit a better grip properly to make a decorative wallhanger.
The cast grip one may be better, the casting is crisp and looks like it once may have been silver plated. Blade is unsharpened, flexible & well etched, lenticular. No markings or writing. It's in purgatory with the other may bees.
