German Red Cross hewer with scabbard and frog. The hewer bears checkered bakelite grips held by the original fixing screws, the finish on the reverse of the pommel is starting to bubble, but the DRK amblem and crossguard remain very good. The underside of the cross guard features the correct "GES. GESCH." stamping indicating that the design was protected by law. The blade bears just the slightest signs of surface oxidation, but are otherwise very clean and show no running marks. The paint on the scabbard is well scratched, but fittings remain very good. The frog shows similar wear and tear, but all stitiching is intact and there are no tears. Could use a little care
