Acid dipped.
I don't think so, David. Note that the peened tang displays similar corrosion.

As Rick, I'd also guess this piece got badly neglected.

Considering that the damage to the horn is pretty much unilateral, I wonder if this kukhri got exposed to exessive heat from fire/etc. and then left in some basement rotting away...

Regards,
Kai
