Default West African knives

This small collection of knives came to me via a student who was from Ghana. They are nothing special--the blades are sheet steel and unsharpened. Typical bazaar knives really. However, the tooled leather on the hilts and sheaths is well done and they are worthy of collecting for the leather work.

I'm assuming these likely were made in Ghana, but anyone having a more precise origin would be greatly appreciated.

Ian.
