Default Southern India?

Here one more knife. In my opinion from Southern India. Any opinions on it?

Default Khanjar

Why do you think it is from Southern India? The makara was as common up North as in the South.

Again. the blade is Khanjar like and I think that the piece is from Northern India, probably Rajasthan.

The decoration on the dagger looks similar to

and

I believe that this decoration is charachteristic for Lahore, but I need some time to look in the books to prove it

Well, I've looked in books, and I think, olikara is right about Rajasthan attribution. In 'Splendour des Armes Orientales' and in 'Rites of Power' there are similar daggers. Anyway, it is definitely not from southern India.
(But I still believe, that the arms in my links are from Lahore )

Thanks big for your opinions! I did not confirm that it is Southern India. It was my assumption.
