A good Somali Billao, post WWII era.

This East African dagger measures 32cms long in its sheath. Out it measures just under 29cms long with a blade length just over 16cms.
The hilt is stacked horn separated by aluminum spacers and capped with a thick heavy brass pommel.
The blade is of the Somali asymmetrical design, hand forged with a large central fuller and beveled cutting edges.

A good cheap example of the type.
