Default Old katar for comment

hello

I found an old and well used katar on the flea market last weekend. It seems to be a well used piece (signs of repeated sharpening) but sports a nicely fullered blade and nice leather covered wooden sheath. The blade has a simple decoration at the base. I'm not sure if it is wootz or not. I'll try to clean it up and give it a decent etch.

All comments on the age / origin of this piece are welcome.

Thanks for looking

Tim
