The bottom one is Tebu/Tubu - a forum search should produce some results of similar daggers.

The top one is very nice and from Western Africa, but I am honestly not quite certain where from exactly - Mauritania, Senegal, Mali?

Default Tassels

The tassels on the scabbard of the top one are distinctive to West Africa, possibly Mali or Senegal. The knife is not familiar to me
