Default Bone grip sword

Please help.
I will try and insert here some pictures of a sword (?) i bought in the flea market, as i can't figure out what this bizarre piece would be.
The grip is in principle made of bone and, together with the cross section ( or not ), would be a replacement, to my guess. The blade is mostly single edged, only double at tip section. It is quite long ( 33 1/2" ) and slender (7/8"), and is over 1/4" thick at its little forte. It is visible, better than in pictures, that its steel is not of regular texture, like having been hand beaten or endured some special treatment, as i guess age doesn't cause such efect.
Coments would be much wellcome.
