hilt and the chape / toe missing. So, repair the scabbard / make
a new wood chape and have one of the best goloks in the collector's
The 19 3/8 inch folded steel blade has patina throughout but should
restore easily / nicely to bring out the very best of the fine pamour.
Blade firm in hilt. The silver (bright red acid test = over 92.5%)
mounts to the hilt are well engraved; one moves now. The carved
tropical wood section of the hilt is well done, but has a few chips
. bits missing. The scabbard is sound but has split down the edges
and lost it's chape. The golok sheathes and draws well.
