Hi Ian,

It's not the first one I have seen where the blade was etched. I guess that it's a Javanese way of restoration. Many different blades where I doubt that the ever was etched with warangan I have seen which seems recently been restored this way. Just my guess!
And my further guess is that old karambit blades are always laminated but normally polished.

Regards,
Detlef
