I have a very graceful and solid dagger. Measuring 14" long and weighing a pound and a half, the handle and sheath are overlaid with with etched brass. The blade appears to be carbon steel, and iis elaborately etched with a dragon motif. There is slot loop on the back for attaching it to a belt. Carefully hand shaped, polished, and accented with silver and brass inlays.
This Eastern dagger features a graceful curving line, with intricate embossing featuring a foliate chain design, on the handle, sheath AND blade. It Measures 10.5" (27cm) long and weighs 3/4 of a pound (.34kg). The blade is a foliate embossed brass, and isn't particularly sharp. There are a pair of rings for attaching it to a belt. It is likely a tourist piece from the 1960's or 1970's, and is very sturdy paper knife.
