One of the oldest pieces in my collection. This a 13inch bladed Artillery Hanger, a type of short sword, made in Weyersberg Germany out of Solingen steel back when it REALLY meant something. Bought for $30 from a pawn shop in my teenage years. I tried to have someone sharpen it, but he let a young relative scratch it up. I was foolish then, and didn't understand to leave it be. They go for $150 and up in better condition.
It has some rust that I need to take care of. Any suggestions?
