Hello Michael,

Quote:
I am waiting for a "material expert" collector friend to come over and help me make up my mind about what it is.

Agree with Rick [I wrote Willem originally - sorry for the error] that it does look a bit "suspicious" - experienced seller says black horn though. If the hilt feels more like stone/bone (harder; colder to the touch), it most likely is Akar Bahar. Close-ups!

Regards,
Kai
