A complete Somali Billao knife.
This African dagger measures just over 42cms in the sheath, 42cms out with a blade of 24cms.
This piece comes with the often hard to find original belt and belt buckle which mesasures just over 97cms long.
The hilt is blade horn with what appears to be stacked brass and pewter spacers and a nicely formed iron pommel.
The blade shows clear bevelled cutting edges and a slight medial ridge. There is pitting to both sides of the blade as seen in the images.
A well priced complete example that could if desired grade up with a little effort.
