Default African ? knife for I.D. and comment

This is a recent acquisition, handle is of ivory I think, and the blade shows clear signs of file marks. Length approx. 9.5 inches. Was very rusty, now cleaned. There was an old label attached on which can just be made out "Native (or Natal ?) knife". Maybe a cross-cultural piece ?

Comments and opinions are most welcome.

Regards.
