That's a popular style that sells well, due to "Game of Thrones." I think people like dagger blades. The timber is a rainforest tree root, exposed from hundreds of years of flooding, then marked by a twisting vine over many years, which eventually rotted away, but left a black spiral all the way down and around the handle.
Below are some of the Aboriginal repro's I do. Knives such as these were collected circa 1900AD in the Tennant Creek area. I have used Mookaite, the originals had a different stone, but I can't tell just by looking at the museum images.
