The Peshkabz Dagger.

 The Peshkabz dagger was developed for penetrating armour and chain mail and is of Indo-Persion ancestory. I am only guessing at this one, but I would date it 17th-18th century. I traded a ww1 bayonet for this when I was a kid. It appears to have silver plating. I am not sure if the handle pins are gold or brass, but in all this time they have not gone green.


 The hilt.
 The back of the blade has a widde sturdy rib. This produces a sort of three point star at the tip to force its way through armour.
