Hello GIO,

Kai is correct, this style of sewars have a simple scabbard toe like by this examples from old threads.

Need help to identify a little knife, Greek, Black Sea, Bulgarian?

I've won this little knife in a lot, my main interest was for an other knife, but after a little bit of TLC it's a small beauty, very well made, cow or goat horn scales, fine copper bolster and a...

Hello Jeff,

Yes, it's a Sumba knife, nice one but not very old. But it isn't a typical West Sumba knife, frankly said I never have seen a West Sumba knife. :shrug:
