Hello Kai,

Sorry, I have overlooked this.

For sure, full agreement! But it seems that we have had the same thread in mind when we looked to Eric's pictures. I only want to point out the direction Eric should search.

I haven't compared, it's not my own blade. But I haven't ruled out a Bugis origin, the pamor could be a hint.
It's a more as unusual blade, also at this point I agree with you completely but my feeling refuses to accept a recent manufacture for this blade, otherwise I would agree with you. Such a black corrosion I see by the first pictures coming not in a few years.
