Vicious little Berber / Tuareg arm or sleeve dagger, brought to me by a friend who regularly takes expeditions into the Mahgreb. Traditionally worn on the left forearm with the hilt pointing up the arm, it's now a status symbol to tuck the end of the scabbard under one's Western-style wristwatch. Sharp and pointy blade, leather and cobra skin scabbard, skull-crusher steel pommel.
