The small overlay on the blade adjacent to the hilt is reminiscent of those seen on some Islamic weapons from elsewhere (e.g., yataghans).

Your sword appears to be of recent manufacture (21st C).

Hi Sir,

the hilt is made of horn (water buffalo). I have another tugaya piece (an older one) and I will post it asap.

Regards

Yves
