Could use some help identifying the era if possible or style I guess?

I've had this knife for awhile tucked away, and yes then forgotten. But after pulling it out, and having my grandpas friend who makes knives take a look at the picture. (Intending to take them in for him to actually see.) He believed them to be a "Pukko" knife.

I've searched again since on my own in an attempt to find perhaps where it came from time wise, the sheaths seem quite nice and well crafted for the age they seem. But i haven't really seen anything too similar to it. I mean the basic shape yes, but the detain of markings, and the openings in the sides allowing you to see into/through it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'd call the knife on the right a small to mid-size Leuku, a traditional knife of the Saami people of Lapland. The left one may be missing a buttcap? Hard to tell from the pic. It might be called a really small Leuku or a puukko. The hard sheath and handle material are reindeer bone. The decorative piercing is a well known thing. If there is a particular significance to the designs (other than coming up with ways to kill time on a winter's day or making something look better than your friends' knives) a little more research will have to be done.
Venturing a guess, I'd say they could be from the 1850's to the 1930's.
