Default Medieval style dagger repro but how old ??

Good day gentlemen,

Can this dagger be something good ??

It seems well done but the velvet is too much
and the damas blade seems weird on this kind of dagger.
Can it be spanish ??
Indian recent fake damas blade ??
do indians 'fake 'bladesmith'' make these models in recent reproductions ?
I didn't find any line this one.

Caveat emptor...

Kind regards

Maybe the blade yes
But guard and pommel are really well made and seems not recent.
Any other thoughts ??

Thank you all for teh message
It said an old dagger in medieval style old reproduction
with real gold ans silver engravings.
Total length 52cm /20,4 inches long overall
long for a letter opener.
I thought about a theater dagger but too much chiselled and why a damas ( fake) blade ?
