The eagle pommel is the earliest type and features crudely engraved eyes, beak, and feathers at neck; the beak is pierced to receive a small ring on which is affixed a chain that connects to the lower quillon. The grip is bone, lightly carved in spiral pattern; there is a silver ferrule at the base of grip. The S-form quillons feature eagle finials. Seen between the blade and the quillons is a narrow oval silver plate. The short and slightly curved blade has a single edge with a false edge running from the end of the single narrow fuller to tip of blade. About half the blade is blued, otherwise mottled gunmetal gray and black Most of the black leather scabbard remains, tip is missing; the throat with hanging ring remains, however, no frog lug; middle band is present; no tip mount.
