It is a telek, but I do not think it is tuareg, strictly speaking. Based on previous forum discussions, this looks like it was made in Bida in what is nowadays Nigeria - I am attaching a similar one I have as an example. A search for Bida should produce additional results. A pity that the scabbard is gone, but the blade looks in great shape well made.
