    I have this old knife that I got when I was a kid that my buddies dad gave me for helping to clean out his grandfathers house. The knife appears to of forged steel as do the links for the chain. The scabbard is made out of some kind of hide, not really sure what type of animal it was from. I have no idea of the origin it was in a box of other knives in the attic and my buddies dad let us each pick out a knife

    A clear closeup well lit photo would be a HUGE help.

    Out of my league...even a lifesize 3d rendering would not help me on this one.

    Looks like a N African arm dagger.
    Maybe Sudan...

    I am an old bloke. Sometimes I forget things that happened. Sometimes, I remember things that didn't.
    When I post, you are getting the best I have on the day. Be kind.

    I suspect you're right again Brian. Appears to be village made and possibly (probably even) ceremonial.
    I'm paranoid only cause everyone's out to get me!

    I think the tribesmen carried them as a weapon...hidden in the sleeve...maybe.
