    The best I can offer is the blade looks like it may have come from a Chinese M1907 bayonet. Possibly rebuilt at some later date as a dagger.

    I agree with my learned colleague

    To me this has the look of a curio made after the fashion of a Soviet style dagger. Possibly investigating the symbology might help as it certainly does not appear communist in style.

    But, bearing in mind the oriental penchant for producing pretty incredible "antiques" from scratch I feel that curio is perhaps the pigeon hole it belongs in.

    If it were me and the present owner is local or reachable I would possibly take it on as a curio (on the basis that it is not totally unattractive) for a mutually acceptable price with an undertaking to pay a premium if research identifies it as an item of greater value.

    Let us know if you do discover anything about it

    Regards

    PS Looking at it again I am starting to think more of the Singapore / Burma sort of area rather than Chinese.

    Well guess what? I sense a little Karma heading his way. I expect he thinks he has a valuable antique to flog so that he can "Buy the World a Coke" but then Karma takes a turn and one of his homies kicks his head in and liberates it so that he can buy "the World a Coke". So the game continues until they eradicate themselves.

    What a utopian dream, Night night children, sleep tight

    " Looking at it again I am starting to think more of the Singapore / Burma sort of area rather than Chinese." That started me thinking Mark.

    Note the Sun emblem on the pommel and grip. I recall seeing that before on the flag of Taiwan. Then I though... Kuomintang Chinese Nationalist dagger. Why not?

    When the Chinese Communists won in 1948 the Kuomintang ended up in two places; Taiwan and North Burma. Up in Burma the KMT began a opium fueled drug empire exporting heroin. Talk about karma!
