    Not Chinese or Tibetan. Decoration looks European. Spanish? Possibly a modern (20th century or later) decorative/tourist dagger.

    Hi Timo
    Sorry for the delay in responding, thanks for looking , on reflection and closer look of the design i feel there is a South American Influence or perhaps Spanish as you say, the patina and wear lead me also to feel late 19thC to early 20th. It would be nice to hear what other think? Or if anyone can point me in the direction of similar examples.
    Kind Regards Pete.
