The grip is made of a dark wood 8.0 cm long with a metal piece 7.7 cm long below. The grip has some type of string wrapped around it in an "X" style; where the strings cross, they have been heated to bind them to the layer of string below. The blade is still fairly sharp and shows some signs of rusting and some chips in upper porting of blade.
