Wiki, I would recommend a grey background. Me and Ger both use cardboard as background. Depending on the colour of the grip I use lighter or darker cardboard. Here's an example I recently posted.
Eickhorn army dagger with glass grip
The dagger is not even close to yours but I just wanted to show you how a cardboard background can work.

So I tried some different color back drops-- As well as the last one in the safe where the dagger lives--- What do you guys think?

the lighter greys work the best

The lighter grey background looks great! Your dagger is even more beautiful than I first thought. Well done
I agree the light grey background makes your dagger stand out showing its lovely gold colour
Sweet rare dagger !!

I Always use the medium grey background, got that tip from the author Hans Seegers, who has published numerous books and articals about binoculars, he explained that a mediumgrey background is the most neutral color, leaving the details of the object as they are.
it sure makes this dagger look great!
