Default Old Somali Bilao Dagger

Picked this up yesterday at the E-mall. An older bilao complete with scabbard and belt in good shape with most of the blade still retaining it's blackened finish.

Nice pick up Lew! So nice to find these with their original tooled leather belt, and no small feat.

I was eyeballing this one as well, but decided to refrain (already got one, though the presence of the belt on this example made it tempting). In the end, I'm glad I didn't run up the price on another forumite.
