Default Gripless dagger for comments

The recent owner 'suspects' this is a left hand dagger. I tend to disagree; the 8,7 inches blade is too short, for one ... i would say.

Unfortunately, the grip is gone !

I think that is likely. Where did it surface?

Northern Portugal; but might have a previous provenance.
