Dharia dagger from Hijaz/Asir region (Western modern day Saudi Arabia) The style is called Rashaq.
Bani Malik and Bani Shahr tribes. Probaly early to mid 20th c.
The top section of the scabbard and the hilt will be silver, and the bottom section of the scabbard is brass. Give it a clean and you will have a very nice item...............

I should perhaps also have said that this type of dagger is often refered to in sellers/collectors circles as "Wahabite" which in fact is completely incorrect. The correct term is "Dharia" and is described as such by the King Faisal Foundation Center for Research and Islamic Studies, Riyadh in their 1991publication titled Swords & Armour.

Thanks for that clarification Stu , 'wahabite' is a term frequently misapplied !
