Hello Montino,

Nice ensemble! I'm attaching your overview pic for easier access.

There seems to be quite some corrosion on the metal parts (the fittings more so than the blade which is unusual).

I'd guess that the fittings are a (nickel-based) alloy in the white brass category; aluminium is considerably softer.

The pommel is typical bunti/banati burl of high quality.

Regards,
Kai
