Rating Definition:

Extremely fine as masterfully embellished by Paul Jaeger, retaining 99% blue and gold finishes with 60% blue on the grip cap and minor handling evidence. There is a small crack coming off the lower tang, otherwise, the wood is very fine with sharp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
