mine could be made by the same guy the same day. although a different endcap the same mutilation has been done for the scabbard.
i guess these "tools" for border refinements were not seen as an iconic collectable. mine has a mirror finish(18k grit) above the etching, and i ground the tip to a very fine point with 40 degrees total angle at the crossguard transitioning to about 65 degrees on the 3/4" from the tip. the rest is cleaned in an ultrasonic degreaser and de-oxidised using electrolitic reaction. now it's ready to get its patina back. since its 70 years old i think i can wait for that, otherwise someone else gets to enjoy it.
