Very nice item! I can say it is well made and has a bone handle. The small blade has a sheath on the scabbard and will install on the handle of the main blade, however this seems to be pretty dangerous, when installed. Overall well made with quality materials and the blade will bend quite a bit without any bending, indicating the temper is done pretty well also.

I just wanted to say this is not safe. I have been collecting and using swords for over 25 years and affixing a blade to the pommel is not a good idea.Having a blade facing you is not a good idea. It is interesting idea just not safe.
