Would you Gentlemen help me with the age and provenance of this dagger ?
... And, of course, your thoughts about its authenticity, as per pictures.
There is not tape where i am but, it should have some 45 cms. full length.
I would be much obliged.

Can you post closeup pictures of the blade and the guard from the front and back?

Seemingly so pristine, I hope it isn't a Victorian copy...........

Those are my fears, Josť; however, pristine doesn't necessarily implies that it is a copy, though. ... :o

I think it is likely 19th C or newer. The lines just look too perfect to me. The base of the pommel appears to be a perfect circle that would only be achieved with more modern equipment.

Thank you guys for your conclusions. Matter solved.
