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.
What would you Gentlemen say ?
Unfortunately, the grip is gone !

I think that is likely. Where did it surface?

Northern Portugal; but might have a previous provenance.

Spontoon? Looks too narrow for a boar spear.

First tendency is Spontoon for me too. I wonder why you did not show the whole thing - this would make things clearer.

As already said; this is the whole thing there is. It came without the grip!
