Hello,

it is an Omani Khanjar of the Al Saidi type.
Daggers like this piece are maybe in use as a child's dagger, but I don't know that really. They are also desired by tourists. Normally the metal mountings are made of thin silver tin.
Yes, daggers like this one are also made for tourists and it is not a very old piece, but I wouldn't call it a "fake". It is still a traditional and pretty silverwork and not made for cheating.
I have also some similar pieces I could show as reference.

Regards
Robin
