Nice to see another similar knife. With yours the blade does seem quite old and is of a form I've seen on other working knives from the region, which makes sense with the smaller size.

To be honest I think the pommel is older than both ferrules and perhaps the piece is a little bit of a composite? I like the overall effect but usually with these hilts the ferrules would be of the same level and decorative nature as the pommel element.
