I agree. At the very least do what in the nihonto community is called a "window" or a section. That way you will not waste your whole time on the blade if no wootz is present.

Nice example of a Visayan piece modified for a Japanese soldier.

Even Japanese blades (not nihonto) were made in the Philippines, Indonesia, Manchuria, etc. for Japanese soldiers.

I think even if you clean the blade, there will still be pitting on the blade, so the blade will never be pristine.

It has been brought to my attention that I forgot to mention the granulation work as well as the filigree work. One more reason why I like this piece! :D

Another thought. For me chasing is much easier than filigree. Filigree is hard enough, but THIS level of filigree is insane!

Again Zukran to both of you - I will look this book up. :)

Theodor, can you give me the full reference please?

Bob, yes it was the filigree and the "T" hilt. However some styles of these I never liked because the "waist" of these hilts were to thick. This...

Yemen Jambiya for comment

Greetings.

Yes this is out of my usual field, but I got this jambiya from Auctions Imperial recently. This is what I surmise so far:

1. It is possibly an Assib style jambiya.

2. This is a rare...

Regarding your extended post before this last one, I concur fully. Taken out of the cultural milieu, any ethnographic piece would lose its meaning and ultimately its true value.

I LOVE THE BLING! The beauty and artwork...........

Perhaps it is also because I am part Filipino. Like the Balinese, Filipinos and Moros love their bling (and they are cousins to all Indonesians).
