This is a Civil War era dirk, most likely made in Great Britain or India and made for export. The tempered blade is 7 1/2" long with an OAL of 14", double edged and sharp. No markings.
It came to me still preserved in grease. Fittings are brass and zinc. The leather sheath is well preserved and the handle has a rotating swivel and lanyard.
