Default Italian (Ligurian?) dagger for comment

Not so long ago I was able to add this dagger to my collection, in this thread: http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showt...hlight=ligurian were shown similar daggers so I think that it could be a Ligurian dagger. It's 33 cm (13") long with a blade from 20,6 cm (8-1/8"). Am I correct? Any age guess? All other comments are very welcome.

Best regards,

I think you have an Italian dagger from the Ligurian type. Having come up at Genova this type of dagger spread over the Ligurian coast in the 17th and 18th century via Southern France to Spain and the Spanish isles. Some copies out of a catalogue of Hermann Historica Munic may help to identify your piece

In all documents and the literature I have is to be red that these daggers have been made from the end of the 17th until the 18th century. All the daggers shown in my fotos are made in these two centuries. They were produced in Italy, Sardinia and Spain as well and I think that the production in Spain continues until today. There they still today make daggers in Albacete which - my opinion - are highly influenced by the old Ligurian daggers.
