|The very fine repousse silver work make this Badek exceptional. The hardwood hilt and scabbard was selected for the grain and quality. The upper scabbard has an area of detailed carving that is in excellent condition. The hilt is at approximately a 45 degree angle from the blade. The single edge slightly convex blade is grey with age but in very good condition with no rust only a few very small dark spots. There are six silver rings on the scabbard which are loose in place. The silver foot is slightly bent and has a resulting crack as shown. 11.25" overall, blade 6 7/8"|
