    Unknown Sword

    If any one can help it would be appreciated.
    Found this in a village in Indonesia was still razor sharp but you can see no one has taken to it with a grinder or rough stone to do this. Some tentative cleaning on one side revealed a straight,narrow temper line the length of the blade. The steel is as smooth as glass even with the rust.

    Looks like a golok made from a katana (minus hilt, of course). A ridged blade like this isn't the most common type of blade in Indonesia, but there are some. Don't see any reason to think it's anything other than an Indonesian sword (possibly converted from a foreign blade).

    How long is it? How heavy is the blade? How thick, near the tang and near the tip?
