Rating Definition:

Very fine as customized/refurbished, with 95% plus high polish blue finish, showing some minor handling/cycling marks overall. The straw finished parts are chiefly polished bright, with traces of original color in the protected areas. The grips overhang at the leading edge, but are in excellent condition with sharp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
