This should be in the European section Chegru.
Nice dagger, why 'cuchillo de monte'?
I think these are rather desirable daggers and although once they appeared on the market quite often, I seldom see them now.
I've seen these examples with a single 'main' edge and offset hilt, described as 'Punal Type A'.
I would say that your date is rather conservative and it might be considerably older.
Congratulations, very nice.

I've currently got an example of types A and B.
Carlos has an amazing collection of type B's and he recommended:
"I know a book, with more information about Albacete cutlery, " INTRODUCCION AL ESTUDIO DE LA CUCHILLERIA ARTISTICA DE ALBACETE".."

We did discuss your dagger last year:

Hello Atlantia
"Cuchillo de Monte" refers to a specific meter type, style and functional elements of daggers and knives combines.

It is, as always, überal wiedersprüchliche answers.
