Totally un-messed with Alcoso, and in all likelihood it has never been dis-assembled since it left the factory. ACS was known for fixing the pommels throughout ALL of their production, so many are damaged because people think the pommel has just seized. It is the one maker where applying additional force to turn the pommel is a very bad idea.
Lovely blade on this one and nothing whatsoever is wrong with the blade orientation.
IMO all daggers and swords started out as parts,So whats the difference as long as the parts are correct.
For Degens: you are our teacher! Thank you a lot for your comments, because from each of them we can learn something new!
