Mystery Kukri

I found this at a swap meet here. No scabbard. There are letters and numbers on the blade, but very faint and hard to see; what looks like 'LI' followed by a possible '88' and an upside-down 'T'...

Thank you, Shakethetrees!

I have been told by Battara to stop right where I am. I agree; I don't want to ruin it by over-processing it.

Thank you for the Info; I have other blades that might be nickel plated.
