I'd say definitely not the original scabbard. That one looks SE Asian or Indonesian to me, with the dark wood and the slightly bulbous end.

Never saw one like that either Berber, but most definitely not original. This interpretation of koummya is certainly 'of the type' but does not seem particularly old.
Best regards,
Jim

I agree with Jim,the knife itself looks pretty nice but the scabbard definately looks like a later replacement.
