Default Can anyone help identify this knife?

Hi guys, I recently won this knife at auction. Iím trying to find out where it came from and how old it is. Iím guessing itís most likely a tourist piece, but Iíve never seen another one like it and I really like the design.

This was the description on the lot: ďAfrican tribal knife, possibly Shona Zimbabwe, the 22cm steel blade with all over punched decoration and antler handle; in inlaid and banded hardwood scabbard with two apertures L42cm overall.Ē

Done a bit of research using keywords from this description but not found anything yet. Anyone have any idea?
