A very good ivory hilted Somalia Billao knife.

Sheathed this Billao is just under 46cms long. Out it is 42cms long with a broad blade just under 22cms.
A very well constructed and very efficient East African fighting knife.
The hilt is a very well kept piece of ivory with horn, pewter and brass stacked spacers. The pommel is a large bulbous silver spire with decorative wire embellishments to the base.
The blade has a slight medial ridge, is hollow forged, has beveled cutting edges and is very sharp.
The sheath is constructed from various types of hide with a broad brown leather belt complete with buckle.

A very good example of a hard to find ivory and silver Billao.
