The handle with a fierce dragon baring his menacing fangs, with good detail work to his mane, scales and nostrils. Three-character engraving in Chinese and European monogram engraved to shaft of handle. The hardwood shaft looks a bit like Zitan with its characteristic crab-claw-markings, but cannot be determined due to a later applied European shellac coating.
