Beautiful sword, very pleasing wootz pattern. I can see 35 in islamic numbers, at the bottom of first mark. Also the Yelman (double edge) is very long, I have not seen many swords like that.

Firangi blade - India or Germany?

I have this long (127cm) firangi. Do you think the blade is made in India or Germany? Second picture is the ridge of the blade.
