Help on age and type of kaskara
Just picked this kaskara up after wanting one for a long time. Since I know very little about these except what I learned here, I would like to ask for help on type age etc. I tried to give good pictures on the cross guard and the markings but they are not as sharp as I would have liked. The markings appear to be moons and are on both sides of the blade. I can't really tell if they are stamped or engraved. I will be cleaning the blade up a bit. The markings are at the end of the short fullers. Fullers look to be well executed. Blade is light, distal tapered and straight. The edges are not currently sharp. I can find no other markings other than the moons. Any help greatly appreciated.
