In the photo, what could serve as material for the handle
It could well be, most often I've seen rosewood used but the grain on this one is different.

It really is a charming little blade, the mix of fullers and different profiles on the spine I find fascinating. The inlay on the hilt components I also find intriguing. The sword overall does not appear ornate at first glance but has a lot of detail.
