Couple of swords - opinions

Recommended Posts

There's another blade being discussed HERE that has multiple lines like this, same cross-the-blade direction.  There must be a metallurgical explanation for these.

My guess is that it has been sharpened with some kind of grinding wheel by someone who didn't know what they were doing. Due to the speed of the wheel and/ or the angle of the blade the wheel has grabbed at the blade and left those marks. The hatchings going the other way are an attempt to remove the grinder marks with something less abrasive.

 

Or to put it less kindly, someone d!cked with it and wrecked it.
