Default Interesting African short sword

Again from my 'heap' I have this dagger or short sword. The blade is reminiscent of a spear head but appears to be purpose made with a substantial iron pommel. The multi fullered blade is thick and of good quality. The scabbard fits well ( apart from the fact that the dagger will not entirely slide in ) It may of course be the wrong scabbard but the difference in blade colour shows that the dagger has been in this scabbard for a long time . The scabbard is wood covered with stitched on monitor skin , but the handle appears to be crocodile . Overall dagger length excluding scabbard is 48 cm .
