Indonesian blade ?
Purchased from West Sumatera, Indonesia. The blade is convex in cross section, measures 18” x 1 1/2 x 3/8” and is forged with some rust and oxidization. The sheath was damaged in shipping (thanks FedEx). I repaired what I could,
But, what classification, what to label it? Should the blade be cleaned and or etched? Do any of the members refinish their sheaths? In advance thank you for any comments.
