It may have been reparkerized, but does appear to have a line of white along the edge.   Hard to tell.  SKIP

Need a picture of the entire knife to see if the handle is also in excellent condition.

Given the condition of the rest of the knife, I'd agree that the blade has been reparked.

The handle has been sanded down near the guard so yes, its been "cleaned" up.

I've seen applications of different liquid phosphoric acids that left what looks like a professional parkerizing coating.  I don't believe the results are consistent from application to application.  The varying in finish from the blade to the guard to the pommel make me wonder.
