Default ID on this dagger

Although I know that the dagger on the left is a Sudanese arm dagger , I have no idea about the dagger on the right or the curious markings .

On the piece on the right, the hilt looks Moro. But the blade is something else.

Hello all,

I actually have a similar blade (see pics attached)

A friend and I have a theory about it.

We suspect that some how a (possibly worn) Luzon blade, from something like a Luzon bowie knife, was remounted in a Moro context.

For mine at least, it "feels" like a gunong in the hand.
I suspect this is intention.

Enjoy,
Leif

The blade looks like one of those North African knives from Morocco and about I believe called Bou Saadi or Boo Sado

Hi,
Let's agree to disagree.
Bou Saadi's blades are not like that (plus Bou Saadi are Algerians)
For me, it's more an Afghan or Indian karud type blade.
The Roman numbers at the forte are intriguing.
I like Leif's idea gunong moro hilt with foreign blade.
Clearly the blade and the hilt are a marriage.
