Default Omani Dagger

Did anyone actually see this dagger recently sold at an Italian Auction House?
Certainly I've never seen one like this before.
Anyway, if my computer skills allow, here is the auction house description and pictures.

"LOT NO. 1019 Dagger

category: Oriental Weapons
origin: Oman
dating: XIX century

description: Straight blade with two wires, with triple fuller; silver mounts embossed wooden grip covered with remains of leather, faceted and buttoned at the cusp tip. Wooden scabbard covered with leather decorated with impressions, with silver mounts embossed.

conditions: good
dimensions: length 56 cm.

awarded: 650.00 (starting price 300.00)"

I would be interested to know what the forum thinks.
PS. The auction has finished so I don't think I've broken any rules, but if the moderators think there are copyright or other problems, I apologise, and please amend as appropriate.
