Pattern Welded Curved British(?) Dagger
here is an unusual pattern welded curved dagger of european origin. According to the description the dagger was made in Sheffield. Length is 33 cm (13"), blade only 17,5 cm (7"). No markings at all, except the initials "DK". The massive silver pommel is a good counterweight to the heavy blade. The handle looks strange curved but lies very good in hand.
One picture shows some remains of black laquer, which indicates some decades of age. I think the dagger was made before WW1, around 100 years ago or more.
I hope, someone can say more. The only thing I could found is a similar hilt from Sheffield and late 19th ct..
Hope you enjoy the pictures.
