The case is possibly Syrian and the knife is a Tuareg tribal dagger. The case is finely inlaid with mother of pearl, velvet lined and fits the knife perfectly. The knife has tribal markings on the hilt and scabbard
This is a very old Tuareg dagger, a nomadic tribe of Niger.
The blade on the dagger is double edged and 190 mm or 7 1/2 inches long, with a total length of 300 mm or 12 inches including hilt.
Tuareg weaponry is exceptionally detailed, and this dagger is an excellent example. The hilt and leather scabbard are decorated with multiple metals, including brass, copper and silver. The Dagger is uniquely embossed with fine intricate patterns reflecting the original owners preference. The hilt is made of brass, copper with added metal ornamentation. Tuareg daggers are treasured for their decorative craftsmanship and individual rarity. Most, if not all, Tuareg men carry such a dagger as part of their “formal” attire. Completely functional and very efficient weapons, the daggers are an important part of personal adornment.
The wooden case is elaborately inlaid with mother of pearl and has brass hinges and catches. Two button magnets have been added to bottom to secure the knife in position and are not original. Please click here to ask a question
