I would say...we don't know what it is until a powerful light is applied ...some fone lights are good... I would say the hilt has been painted on with some black substance making it difficult to see what the material is but would not be surprised to find it is Rhino. These Jambia often have a replacement hilt and a lot came from old Ethiopian swords imported into the region
