i hope all is going well with your studies. i recently came across the remnants of a wootz (i am assuming) blade from the 10th-12thC, probably afghanistan area. the possible date and region comes from the hilt, which is now long gone. however, whilst it has moved on to bigger and better things, i have a very rusty (crusty) remnant of a blade that can only be interesting to you, and no-one else.
let me know if you want it, and where to send it to.
i'm afraid you will just have to trust me on the dating, but it was definately (relatively definate) of this period.
any updates on publication?
