Summary Good

Assessor Emma Evnas

Notes The wooded handle has some scraches on it, and on the very bottom of the handle there is a worn section. The metal on top has rusted a little, there are some spots that are brownish. Closer to the top by the pocky part, there is more rust. Where the metal connects to the wood, it is loose. It connects by a nail. On the very tip od the pocky part, there is a place the thread can go through.
