Wonderful thing, I hope it's in your collection, Cerjak! I like the way that the corrosion reveals what appears to be a distinct lamellar forging structure in the pommel, crossguard, and possibly the tang.

Hi Philip,

Thank you for your comment , yes this sword is now in my collection.
The blade is well corroded but still in very good condition only missing the last part of the point so not bad . We can notice that the grip has protected the tang for a long time before to disappear


Best
