The thing to remember is that in some cultures at some points in time, every blade is made from a nice (to us) laminated steel/iron whatever the status of the item. That's just how a blade was made.

I would ID it as a typical Kaskara rather than a Takouba, as for age..... They were still making them recently for their own market, carried at weddings by groom and male relatives. If a tourist...

The very man indeed! I still have two of his barrels, one the aforementioned, and the other a rifled Damascus octagonal long percussion barrel.

I think they remained married, but every-time there was a disagreement between them, they would yet again enter the land of regret.
