It's exactly what I think, probably stored in an attic, or an English basement with a lot of humidity...

As Jim mentionned many times, the problem with ethno weapons is: it's not because they look old that they are old...

African and Arab weapons look old because they were worn with a poor maintenance.

For your Indian kukri it's just a problem of conservation.
