It's in pretty good shape. It's definitely worth $8. I haven't done anything with it yet but I'm sure when I sand it and put linseed oil on it, it will look really good.

These are not a cheap lathe turned knockoff, mine was evidently all hand carved. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because it will need additional carving to attach it to my longleaf blade. For the price, definitely worth it. Highly recommended.

Handle looks great, I am fitting it on to the original blade I bought

My handle came. It is very nice externally. It is a reproduction. It has NO inletting for blade to handle fitting as per picture. This is a cheap item but I wanted to fit it to a blade. Rather disappointed. AC offered a discount which I will ignore but was appreciated. AC is good folks and I will continue to buy from them.
