    I bought this knife 20 years ago for $10 from a flea market in Old Mexico south of Del Rio ,Tx from a really old gentleman and he said it was from the early 1900's....Any help on its identity would be awesome.

      Generic Mediterranean area dagger, from Spain. The macho engravings say "Live (the life of) the man of honor" & "the traitors (will) die" which is sort of like saying "the honorable man will kill the traitors with this knife." It may be related to a specific time-frame of civil unrest, ca. WWI, in Spain. Much more research needed.
