Default Modern Somali Dagger For Comment.

I was watching this recently on eBay and I am still scratching my head. Someone really must have wanted this bad. Evidently this is a better than average modern example due to the style and materials used. The final price was just a bit more than I was willing to shell out .

Btw here are a few bilao daggers that have passed through my hands over the years for comparison.

You are not allone! I was as well bidding on this one and since it is recent I never thought that it went high like this. Without doubt it is a nice looking piece but such a priece?
