I received a sword from Surabaya, Indonesia. Attached are some photos. The blades structure may be pattern-welded. The grain lines in it appear long and wavy. Would anyone tell me more about this item, level of quality, age, if I should attempt to improve the blades appearance, if so how? Polish, etch, arsenic trioxide, wash and dry,ect.
The final picture shows the condition of the scabbard complements of FedEx International. Repairing / resurrecting this sheath is going to be a challenge. To give credit, the shipper kindly, refunded my entire purchase.
