    Even without having any idea of the size I am pretty sure that is not part of a dagger. Usually daggers are two sharpened edges, and in the US mostly straight.

    I'd be more inclined to say cultivator blade tip.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Depends on the use and type. Rotary on the outside of the curve. Drag on the inside.

    Only main problem i see with it being this, is that i saw the tip of the blade (im the one who accidently broke it off cleaning it...) and it wasnt shaped like those, it came to an actual point not flat like in these pictures.

    OK. Steel cultivators have been in use since horses pulled them, There are thousands of designs.

    Can you show your item beside a similar dagger?

    Hopefully this helps clearify anything, upon further cleaning, it appears only the tip was actually sharpened

    A worn out horse shoe wears thin at the toe.....if you beat some rust off it you will probably see the nailing holes.

    I did several minutes ago, no holes. Also, i saw the pointed tip of the blade before accidently breaking it off, Im pretty sure this isnt a horse shoe.
