At least the shiny black plastic electrical tape has held up well, but I know what you are talking about and having found it this way I have no plans to disturb it.

The pira (without scabbard) weighs about a pound (457 grams); the blade is 18.25 inches long and has a maximum breadth of 1.88 inches.

The octagonal hilt indexes very well in the hand. Note that the wood is slightly lighter where it is covered by the scabbard (in contrast to my defective memory of this as sun bleaching rather than darkening in my first post in this thread).
