Chinese dagger

length: 15 1/2"
blade: 10 1/4"
blade width: 3/4" base
grip: 3 3/4"
guard: 2 3/4"

Made in China for export circa late 1800's to early 1900's. Blade is decorative only, but I'm sure you could put an eye out if you tried hard enough. Metal hilt and metal scabbard. I found this in 1998 advertised as a "Gothic style dagger knife w/shield", so let that be a lesson to you. Yes, this is a tourist dagger, but it's a cool *antique* tourist dagger.
