Default Help Identifying This Shibriya

I picked up this shibriya at a yard sale last year and am trying to figure out how old it is and from what country it originated. The scabbard is white metal over wood with a steel backing. The hilt is copper and Iím not sure what the other material is. The blade is forged from a file.
I posted about it on a Facebook page and someone posted the second shibriya pictured down below and commented on similarities between it and mine. He said it was made in Gaza in the 80ís. Maybe mine is from the same area or maker? Thanks!

Welcome to the forum!

First you have to upload the photos. You can do it by re-opening your message by clicking the "EDIT" button.

Then, click "MANAGE ATTACHMENTS" to start attaching the photos. Make sure the photos meet the requirements to be uploaded (they have to be rather small size, but detailed information you wil find at the link below).
