The quillon is just appearent and rolled at the terminal.

Very plain scabbard, as it was, because these sabres were kept in secure rooms inside boats, to avoid mutiny.

Just clean excess of oxydization with some oil on a cotton cloth to protect your nice costumes.
Very pleasant to handle, this is a basic weapon, very functionnal and with an unusual raw appearence.
