It possibly might be an original dagger although its blade is very untypical and tends to the historism. But the slots, normally used for catching and breaking the adversary's blade are certainly not...

I think this is a "Felddegen" of Southern-Germany or Switzerland around 1720. Probably the copper-bandaging might be a remake.
