Default Identification please

Hello,
bought this at auction, mainly due to the markings on the blade. Was hoping someone would have an idea about origin, date etc
thanks

Hello,

Looks like a Thai/Hmong e-nep knife with a Nepalese flavour. Funny how similar the handle decorations are to those on Algerian Bou-Saada knives.

Agree: Thai. Late 20th c.

What is the handle material? Horn? Stone?
