Hello SÚverin,

Congrats, you did very well!

This is a coteng and seems to be a genuine ensemble. Coteng tend to be more rustic (both, for the fittings as well as the often imported blades) than their cousin, the tajong. The tin tamin is not common but fits right in there.

I believe the hilt's nose got already repaired during active use; another restoration wouldn't hurt and look much better IMVHO.

In case you give it a gentle cleaning, please have a close look if the hilt is made from more than 1 piece of wood (repairs at the base of the hilt are very common).

Regards,
Kai
