    Interesting yet unknown dagger and scabbard from who knows where... Please help!

    To make a long story short...

    When I was 13 (27 now) I traded my Nintendo for this dagger. The kid I traded it with told me the following story, "I got it from my Grand-father who took it from some guy he killed in Japan during WW2". Now that seems a bit cliche but all I got is the fact it came from somewhere in that area (thus why I am posting here). This is a very interesting dagger, and I once showed it to a Angel Swords sales-person who told me it came from some country (I remotely remember it being a country in Asia). He then offered me some piddly change for it, but I don't want to sell it. I find it to be very unique.

    Some things I wish to learn about it:
    • What is the blade made of?
    • What is the rest of it made of?
    • Where is it from?
    • When is it from?
    • Are there symbolic meanings to the parts on it?

    I very much appreciate your time.

    Right off the bat my instincts say it came from some where in Africa. As far as the materials go, it looks like a steel blade with a combination of raw hide and leather weave on the scabbard, guard, handle, and pommel of the piece. That is my opinion. I hope it helps.
