Hello,

You can clean the blade with oil, but that needs a long time.
The faster way is vinegar, but that has also some disadvantages.
The surface can become dull and you have to be carefully...

Hello,

I think it really means simply "Solingen". Such marks are often a little misprinted, but normally spelled in the correct manner. So, that is a bit strange. But the letters are looking like...

Hello,

I think the miniature dagger of the belt is not a Kama or Khanjar, I would say it is a Bebut. These daggers are similar to Kamas and Kindjals, but they have a curved blade.

Hello,

it is an Omani Khanjar and not a Jambiya. Of course that is only a name game because Jambiyas and Omani Khanjars are very similar.

Hello,

I'm not sure if it is damascus, I think the steel is just folded for refinement.
The hilt is made of rhino horn.
Good sword.

the mountings of the scabbard looking old to me and the decoration on the back of the hilt, too.
