An electrolysis bath can remove rust very efficiently; and when the rust has gone there is no further degradation to the iron that is revealed.

Xasterix, could you put a name to this blade pattern if you know it; and could you guess at the approximate age?

I gather that JC is not making bladed weapons now?
Thank you.

I doubt it's a mismatch. I think I see abalone inlay on the bolster as well as the scabbard.

Mine?
Gonjo iras; I don't know this pamor.
Apolaki's keris looks to be an iras also

Any ideas as to the type of horn?
I have seen ram's horn snuff mulls that are scotch in origin.
Maybe the type of horn could give a clue. :shrug:

I understand that some of these were started on purpose; there's no punishment too extreme for this kind of behavior.

Maybe with a proper type of flux the scarf joint between the dissimilar steels could have been achieved.
I would imagine Ric Furrer might have some thoughts on the subject.

Talisman

That could be the right insignia.
Since I have an overactive imagination I'll guess that the emblem was burned into the wood with a red hot uniform button.

Interesting indeed. :)

Most fouled anchor devices have the shank and flukes entwined along with the stock.
What is the size of the impression?

The marking appears to be burnt into the wood.
I have not been able to find an anchor device with a caduceus wrapped around the stock as this one is.
It also looks like multiple impressions. :shrug:
