Default Ethiopian scabbard with utility knife????

Run into this scabbard from an Ethiopian sword and a little tab sticking out at the throat got my curiosity. I pulled it and out came a very crude blade, about ten inches long. Utility knife to slice raw meat when eating? As far as I know Abyssinians had the habit of biting into a chunk of raw meat, hold it with their teeth, pull it with the left hand and slice it close to the lips with a knife. Or even with a sword, according to some paintings... Martin, have you ever seen anything like this? Has anyone? Any thoughts?
