Hi Stefan,
Your Dharia dagger is of Rashaq style and comes from Asir/Hijaz region of what is now Saudi Arabia. Not sure how old your item is but if the hilt silver is very thin, then it is likely to be of recent manufacture (late 20thc onward). If the silver is of good quality and thick, then it will be much earlier...possibly late 19th or early 20th c. Judging by the look of the belt, (the leather looks quite new), I tend to think that your dagger is late 20thc
Please refer to the link kindly supplied by Ibrahiim to an original post about these daggers. You will find more detail there.
Regards Stu
