    As Komo says, the top one is definitely African, but what it is exactly and where it is from I cannot say.
    The second one looks to me like a Sudanese arm dagger. These Nubian daggers were kept in a leather sheath that was strapped to the forearm, handle downwards for easy access when needed.
    I do not think that either of them are very old to be honest, but have to admit that African tribal art is not really my thing.
