Help identify this knife \ dagger \ sword :)

Hello guys,
could REALLY use some help with this one.
Found similar islamic knives \ daggers but nothing i could actually compare.
Could be an ivory handle or a bone..
A-N-Y info would be appreciated! Thank you!

That one's a mystery to me, but reminds me a bit of some work from the Philippines...
The blade is similar to a bolo, yet the handle reminds me of a dah sword's. Maybe a composite?
