The anterior face of the blade is embellished with fine and impressive flat engraved Greek key fret band accented with a stylised leaf motif to the tip.

'Presented to Alrfr Scott Esqrr by the Members of the Local Board on the occasion of his Laying the Foundation Stone of their new offices, Morley, 8 Novr 1866'.
