Sabre takoubas tend to be rarer in my personal experience, and so this is a nice find. The leather wrap on the hilt has some similarity to a takouba shown in Waffen aus Zentral-Afrika by Johanna Agthe. The same page also shows a French sabre blade mounted with takouba fittings, though the hilt on it is all brass.
