Thanks to those who input on this subject. On the face of things, it would appear the knife is from the North West Frontier/Afghanistan area, as suggested. However, along with the knife came these African wooden spoons, which have a similar "ring and dot" decoration. The spoons are labeled as being from Bechuanaland (colonial name for Botswana).

Merely a coincidence do you think ?

Regards.
