Featuring naturally figured one-piece wood grip vaguely resembling a full-length cloaked
figure of a woman; brass-head tacks on each side. Unusual brass guard with vertically
fluted quillon block and short button finials. Unmarked 6 3/4″ hollow-ground triangular-
section blade (tiny hole, apparently intentional, just below the ricasso).
