Spanish dagger?
 
5 Attachment(s)
Hello dear members,

This dagger crossed my way recently, I guess it's Spanish but would know your opinions about it, exact origin and an age guess maybe! ;)
The handle from massive brass let become this dagger very heavy, the big guard is from iron, blade has a diamond cross section and has some serious pitting. The dagger is 31,5 cm long with a blade from 21,5 cm. The last picture show it with my Albacete dagger. All comments are very welcome! :)

OK, so you don't feel too lonely:

Looks like a Professional Lady of the Evening's defensive dagger to ensure her temporary employer actually pays for services rendered w/o beating her up. Or maybe a professional Gambler's backup sidearm.

I think that it's for a lady to heavy and since it's size difficult to hide!:shrug:
