I think that minimum the hilt is tribal work maybe because the original was broken.
I would hesitate to remove the hilt and scabbard mounts only because they don't fit the norm.

I don't know how to work with wood and horn or silver. Also find plates or wire of silver and horn is easy, but I still don't know what are the wood species traditionally used.
So I would not risk changing the clothing of the blade.
