The anterior face of the blade features an extended angular border embellished with bands of tooled decoration.
The ornamentation to the blade incorporates the contemporary engraved presentation inscription:

The interior of the box bears the retailer’s mark of ‘By Appointment, Mappinn & Webb Ltd, Regent Street, London W’.
