mid 20th century, Tuareg.
Native blade with rough hammer finished blade. While a bit crude, this is similar to some wide blades. Leatherwork has been refreshed within the last 25-30 years. Pommel is quite nice, in an older style with well executed line work. While not a spectacular example, wide blades are relatively rare and this example provides a nice footnote to the subtype.
