The odd appearance of the blade surface is from corrosion. Water trapped with the blade in a scabbard does exactly this. It can become fairly deep and you will continue to see it even after later use without a scabbard. Originally the blade was polished and water would puddle making this type of pattern for lack of a better term . These French blades are not folded steel.
