Hi Charles, agree on the dating. Locally made blade I would think but hard to say given the amount of polishing on the fullers. Looks quite good quality though.

Scabbard doesn't look 'Tuareg' to me. But the belt strikes me as not fitting with the ensemble. Maybe a replacement?

Love the hilt! And well preserved leather and skin. I like these Manding examples with the larger guards. I think its hard to call a skin grip like this a Sudanese style in particular.
