These are pictures of the handle from the seller. As you can see one side does not have the top of the rivets. Should it? Are these usually flush with the handle or should both sides be the same? It...

Really hard to tell from the pics, but the blade does not look forged to me. Looks like it was cut out of a bigger piece or possibly stock removal. I do not see a distal taper, thickness looks...

I know this is kinda old but I am getting ready to etch a possibly wootz blade with nital 3%. For those of you that use nital 3% what do you do afterwards? Baking soda or a acid neutralizer?

Kaskara handle construction

Is there a proper form of handle construction on the Kaskara? Most of the ones that I have seen have a ring shaped pommel. Neither of mine have this. Granted the handle is damaged but the handle does...
