The hilt look very recent to my eyes. Recent hilts from Bali are often carved from moose horn. Difficult to be certain by the look to pictures on a screen.

Not easy, it seems to have some age, the materials is strong/ solid, not from bone, does not seem from ivory (black spots), so my best guess is deer antler.
Regards
PS: Moose antler is a strong possibility as advised by Detlef.

Other opinions are welcome of course. I attach for reference a semi old Dayak carving made from local deer antler (not moose) with a similar patina & colour (but your piece looks a bit darker from the pics).
