Default And Another Tibetan Dagger

I just acquired this recently; I have been looking for one of these for a while and it appears that a lot of other people have gotten some other very nice examples lately.
From a previous post on this site, I believe that it came from the Qinghai Provence.

This type is shown as part of a belt setup in Warriors of the Himalayas: Rediscovering the Arms and Armor of Tibet.

A good resource is this book that can be downloaded free from the Met. Page 212 posted here.

Some very nice examples. I noticed that yours has a bi-colored handle like Kronckew; I wonder if that is indicative of a particular knifemaker or area. Also, your scabbard is similar to his as there seems to be a degree of variety in the construction of the sheaths, which might also suggest different bladesmiths, or maybe it was just customer preference.
Thanks, RAMBA for the article and the belt configuration; it gives me something else to look for.
