That looks OK.

Remember that the cross guards were made of metal and that the inside measurements were sometimes slightly different. The dagger blades were forged and the tangs also varied slightly. The grips were wood and a little work with a file was often necessary to make all pieces fit correctly together.

I also agree with Dave ...the grip is as expected of an early construction and milling
