Default Spanish dagger?

Hello dear members,

This dagger crossed my way recently, I guess it's Spanish but would know your opinions about it, exact origin and an age guess maybe!
The handle from massive brass let become this dagger very heavy, the big guard is from iron, blade has a diamond cross section and has some serious pitting. The dagger is 31,5 cm long with a blade from 21,5 cm. The last picture show it with my Albacete dagger. All comments are very welcome!

OK, so you don't feel too lonely:

Looks like a Professional Lady of the Evening's defensive dagger to ensure her temporary employer actually pays for services rendered w/o beating her up. Or maybe a professional Gambler's backup sidearm.

I think that it's for a lady to heavy and since it's size difficult to hide!

More possible IMHO.
