Default Khybers

Two Khyber's that are in my collection. They look like they could have been made by the same maker. The one with the missing parts is about 1 inch longer than the other. The one with the complete handle was billed as being wootz by the seller. I did not see it in the ebay pics but knew the seller and he is very good so i went for it. I do not see it I have tried all sorts of angles and different lighting, no go. So I will have to polish it up and etch it. First try will probably be vinegar, if that does not work then I'll go to ferric chloride. But what do you all think of them? The one missing the guard as an interesting figure which would have been under the guard. I have never seen anything like that before.
