Default ethiopian dagger ? or from Sahara ?

Hello dear members,
I just bought this small dagger, nothing special but I liked the ornaments on the scabbard
( seems small silver pieces and brass/copper pearls on leather parts)

The hilt is made of horn, not wood,
ending with a metallic chape/pommel ,
maybe made of aluminum.

The seller told me he took it bake from a trip in Sahara between Algeria and Niger 40 years ago.

It seems an authentic knife not just touristic stuff.
I wonder if it's not an ethiopian piece
( who travelled a little...) ??
( it looks like a small gurade-shotel hilt )
