Default Punhal for coments

This humble piece is close from junk, but it seems to me that it is no kitchen knife, as also it follows a determined pattern, which i would like to know if anyone here is familiar to this shape of knife.
The handle plates are apparently boxwood ... a common practice around here.
The blades measures 10 cms (4").
It is a rather heavy item, due to its solid bolsters, a thick full size tang and iron pommel plates.
Thanks for any input.
Fernando

Bowie/hunting knife honed down to paring knife? Neat.
