Such small hunting sabers, in German called Jagdplaute, are relatively common in Germany. So I would guess that your piece is German, too. Often they have a bird on the guard, a fish is far more...

I think you caught a nice fish:D

Hello,

I would say it is a shortened german "Jagdplaute" from the early 19th, maybe late 18th century.
It is difficult to say more about this piece because it is just a fragment.
