no to much time to do the manipulation, and now we are in Paris
in Damascus, the blade has been cleaned, and I took 2 pic's
- one for the surface
- one for the thikness
the specialist told me that, it was à nice "johar" ??
definitely, it's not the type of wootz what the picture from "Oriental-Arms" shown
I bought from Boukhara (Uzbekistan) a knife, with the same wootz steel,
it's a new made production, and I didn't be very impressed, just to come back with a "souvenir"
I will prepare a post about it
