The Tuareg blade below has been vetted as authentic.
Photographs © Hamill Gallery
27" long (with sheath)
18" knife alone
Despite its dashing appearance, it is in poor condition and patched together.
The blade does not fit the scabbard/sheath. It is both too short and slightly
too wide to go all the way into the sheath.
