In no way a blade with such curvature and width, could possibly penetrate even modest armour.

It could be French but the type of construction, materials and etching on the blade are somehow consistent with 19th century Toledo factory works.

Yet, it is of a rather classic shape that would be...

From what I see in the photos, this looks like a clasic example of 19th century Persian qama... and a very nice one.
