What does this mean?

Dear Gabriel,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a Near East or Ottoman Khanjar dagger. It is made out of iron or steel for the blade and wood and brass for the handle, hilt and the scabbard. This piece was made in the late 19th or 20th century
This piece is in medium condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 80 to 160 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
Georg
