A very nice and unusual African loop dagger.

An interesting study piece being of the daggers known to the Tiv people of Western Africa found in Mandinka dress.
The overall length in the sheath is 26.5cms long, out it is just over 24cms long. The blade is 14.5cms long and 3.5cms wide.
The entire dagger is a bronze construction as is known for the type.
The sheath is tooled and decorated leather of contrasting colours in typical Mandinka style and has a belt loop to the rear which is another interesting aspect of the overall design.

A very good complete example of a seldom seen knife in unusual dress.
