The handle is Gorgeous Elk Horn that still has the Original Irvin Campbell sticker attached, it has a brass half guard and butt cap with white & red spacers at the guard & butt.

Mistakes and misunderstanding do however occur, people do have different interpretations of descriptions and sometimes perceive them to be what they want them to be like & don't always look at the complete description & that is when a dispute will come up . In 99.9% of cases the matter can be amicably resolved by a simple exchange of e-mails. I am of the opinion that to revert to using eBay's adverse feedback system without first using the e-mail route or calling me is unprofessional and indicates a lack of desire to resolve any differences we may have , communication is always the key to a resolution . Lets be honest we all make mistakes and I will always go that little extra with eBay members who do communicate in an e-mail or telephone call , rather than using neutral or adverse feedback. If you are new to Ebay please send me an Email & I will help you in any way possible to make this a nice experience for you ! Please look at my feedback & you will agree that I try very hard to do the right thing !
