I noticed it too, looks like an interesting piece.
But a 2 lb 6 oz sword is actually 1 lb overweight? A kilij must be insanely lightweight then if it's 1.5 lbs or less. How long were blade lengths on average then? Just wrapping my head around how the sword's designed as I'm not super familiar with them.
I'm no expert, but I'd say not very likely. A difference of a pound would require as much polishing/sharpening as it takes for a typical chef's knife to start looking more like a filet knife.
I have seen a number of tulwar etc with blades that look like they've been sharpened a lot (ricasso much wider than cutting edge, for instance) but whether that can be applied to kilij, I don't know.
I can vouch that T-section blades are super thin, though. Of my 5 T-section khybers, not one is more than 2mm thick apart from the spine. Of course, they're also around 2" wide at the base, so they still weigh quite a lot. For instance, my lightest is 804g (1lb 12.4oz) and my heaviest is 1218g (2lbs 11oz) for ~23" blades. Kilij look narrower and cold possibly be even thinner, or feature more taper, bringing their weight down even more? Need to get my hands on an old one some day...
Brother Nathaniel: I just sent an email to craig to ask him if he might consider the Pommel as a mace head but the email inbox was full apparently. Hope all is well with A&A

aldarith: I guess this means I need to experience a properly wrapped katana.

aldarith: I had a katana once, the wrap failed and I wasn't satisfied when trying to rewrap it so I sold it on.
