Damascus blade. Leather/nickel silver/bronze/sambar handle. Snakeskin sheath. Fantastic fit & finish. Made by dutch knifemaker Gudy Van Poppel. I'll let the pics do the talking:

To get an idea how the sheath works:

That's not me in the pic, that's Gudy, the maker.

Kind regards,

That one could be called a Scagel inspired short sword! That's a lot of knife. Nicely done too.

Damascus is nicely done, almost looks painted on with a fine brush... nice.
