    The blade measures 6-1/4 inches and the handle 4-3/4 inches. The handle looks like it is layered and held together with pegs or pins. The sheath looks like it is made of wood covered with brass or copper. It has a sharp point and edge. Thanks for any help identifying this knife.

      I'm certainly no expert but, this dagger looks Persian to me. Whether or not it is a reproduction of an 18th century Indo Persian dagger is beyond me. Hope this helps, if even just a little bit.

      Thanks Grendelking
      I believe you may be right on that. It does look similar to some of the Persian daggers I have seen in my research. Mainly the markings on the blade and the scabbard. As far as it being reproduction I don't know that yet either. I know that the edge is very sharp. Thanks again you gave me something more to go on.

      The markings on the blade are not engraved. It could be Koftgari art, but not sure. I will be looking into that too.

      Its a Jambiya dagger, tourist made piece. 1900-1920's. Golan style, made in the village of Majdal Shams in the Golan Heights possibly...
