Default Kuba dagger from swap meet

I found this today for the cost of a fancy dinner for me and my wife. Does anybody know the age? The handle is detailed with very fine ornamentation. It looks like small nails.

Nice ikul! Is the blade from iron? Age is difficult to guess but I would guess first half of the last century. How long is it?

Definitely Iron. I haven't really cleaned it, and it shows rust. Blade length 10 inches, full length 14 1/2 Inches. Thank you for the info, Sajen!
