It does have a little pitting and the very tip is broken off but I like it a lot 👍

Common to see pitting on many of these
As we have discussed the process of acid tanning the leather will also effect the blade over time.When the leather gets wet or draws moisture it will pit the blade.I have a couple they look to have seen a lot of salt water and with pitting on the blade.The leather scabbards are pretty brittle as well

Not too shabby- looks like it still has plenty of bluing. Definately a keeper.

What did you use for your handle?
A little Luxor leather conditioner
