A Billao knife of unusually high quality.
This fine piece measures 42cms in the sheath, just under 42cms out with a blade just under 25cms.
The well shaped hilt is made of horn with a brass bolster to the blades edge that carries incised decorations, stacked pewter and brass spacers and a beautiful and well made triple spire pommel.
The blade is of a non-symmetrical shape with beveled cutting edges hollow ground sections that create a raised medial ridge. The tip is full and the blade is supple.
The sheath is in good condition with decorative motifs to the throat.
A very efficient fighting knife and sheath from Somalia.
