Indian khanjars do not have a forte and scabbard chiseled like this. I'm with RSword on this one entirely.

Better pictures would be more helpful though.

The similarities to the lopah are why I mentioned Aceh.

OO.........I like this one! :D

Kinda makes me think of Indonesia, even perhaps Aceh, although the blade makes me think of Borneo.

I belief that Cecil Quirino calls this type of thin bladed badung a sipput badung.

This is a style indicative of Palawan.

I've seen this somewhere before.

I'm wondering if the pommel was broken and cut off at the back tip and the bottom tip.

For me this is a head scratcher. :confused:

With the beads and pommel shape, I would guess Bagobo. Unique example.

I wonder if the hilt is upside down.

Nice old kris. I would place this in the late 1700s and Sulu. The pommel looks ivory, and it looks like there was a ferrule at the bottom of the hilt.

The blade needs a good etch.

I agree Kubur, this is not koftgari but true silver inlay on the blade.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but koftgari was more often on Balkan pieces and inlays more often on pieces from Turkey, right?

Yes that is usually the best way to distinguish the tribal differences. The back of the ganga (or opposite side of the yellow areas) is another way, as well as decoration/okir/ukkil motifs.

Does look like a form of knobberrie, doesn't it? And the Zulu did use beads and these colors (but so did other South African groups).
