Half right. I recognized the pattern on the blade as typical of meteorite iron. But I didn't realize the handle scales were special.

I thot garnet. Guess the stone it's on made me think of that.

@eddi: same here. Meteor was obvious. I would've guessed the handle to be a lithometeor, but apparently not.
