Default Indian loop handle knife??

Hello all
Is there a correct name for one of these?
I've been through Stone and Egerton and there doesnt seem to be one. There are similar ideas with the Bichwa daggers but they seem to usually have a curved blade.
Also any ideas on age? I had thought may be modern until I removed the varnish from the blade, which seems to be old steel and the red paint seems to be a modern addition hiding chissled engraving of rather fine grade.
Any ideas much appreciated.
