Yes, that's the dagger.
I had two measurements in mind for this, one was 20cm, one was 30cm.
I took the 20cm as blade length, the 30cm as overall length.
My source was probably one of several books I have somewhere on the European Iron Age, I cannot remember correct titles or authors and I do not know where they are, and its not important anyway.
As for dating, I'd guess that as with many archeological finds, opinions can vary, and in this present case it is of no moment, the important thing is that iron technology was around a long time before KT played with his dagger.
This pic is the dagger I was talking about.
