I doubt that the upturned side is designed as a cutting blade as all I have seen are blunt edged and the tips are rounded. Just the style I think.
There are other African axe types which also have a...

Two more African Axes for comment

Just received these 2 which I believe are from Tanzania and likely the Nyamwezi people.
They are very similar but slightly different carving on the hafts.
All comments welcome.

Hi gp and welcome to the Forum.
I agree with others that your knife/dagger is likely North African.

Not Algerian IMHO. The stock shape is all wrong. More like a Spanish style stock, and the lock engraving does not look North African either.
Nice piece either way.
