Very nice knife - one of the scarcer types. Missing the leather wrapped handle unfortunately. Or maybe it does have the handle ? I can't see from the picture clearly...

A very similar knife is shown on page 79 from "panga na visu" and described as Tubu, Wadai and Ennedi region, Tibesti mountains, North-East Chad. The form is very similar but the shown knife don't have the fish engravings.

Congrats, very nice throwing knife!:)
