    Eastern Dagger - Help Needed

    Hi,
    I have absolutely no information about the dagger, it was in the family of my boyfriend (now based in Ireland, but the dagger has been in the family too long to pinpoint where it came from) and we would like to find out more about it.
    I assume it is either from middle East or Caucasus or no idea at all. I would really appreciate any help or indication where we could search for more info!

    Thank you in advance for any help which you can provide.

    Welcome to the community.

    The script on the blade looks to be Tibetan to me, though I'm not 100% sure.

    Hi,
    Your knife is from Finland and is called a 'Puukko'.
    Welcome to the forums.

    Hello,

    Hi Joanna,

    I agree with Emanuel. Very nice puukko indeed.
