Just clean (in this case) with simple steelwool 000 and 00 and some oil like WD40 or ballistol.

Nice sword!
I agree it's probably a commemorative date.

I have a similar one, dated 1810, with reference to sultan Muhammad al-Fadl, who indeed reigned between ca. 1801 and 1838.

Could be Javanese?

A great 18th century shamshir! Congrats!

Indeed from the KONDA or neigboring tribes in Congo.
I agree it isn't very old, relatively weak blade which is not forged.
Might be from around 1950, but probably slightly younger.
