Cleaned up not to bad I think ,lots of autosol, wire wool and good old elbow grease :roll: ,has a hollow forged blade 14 inch ,lovey Kaudi type ,nice handle ,found something unusual under all the rust ,has a thin fuller along the top of the spine with brass punched into it ,you can see it in the Picts ??
The Khaki scabbard is actually stitched to the leather on the pouch and Karda Chakmak pockets .
How you guys think date wise WW1 ??
