I think this is a Flissa of Tunesia or Morokko

I might agree with North Africa, but not sure of the flyssa idea.

Doesn't look Iflissan. Could be N. African. The dotted circle motif is very eclectic worldwide, tho.



My Flyssa dagger for comparison. Flyssa swords have similar grps and distinctive decoration to the blades: Note also the intricately carved wood scabbards.

“Doesn't look Iflissan. Could be N. African”

Flissa is Algerean, i.e. N. African.
But many local weapons everywhere were made by village armorers and were “simplified” and not conformed to the G.C. Stone’s criteria.
