    Can enemy one tell me about this?

    It looks like a smaller version of the famous 'Khyber knife' beloved of the Pathan peoples of Afghanistan and Pakistan.  The blade shape and the 'eared' handle are common to fairly distinctive, though other blades from that part of the world may be similar'  If you Google 'Khyber knife' or 'Choora' you will find many similar looking blades.

    This looks like a simple blade with honest wear on it, so it's probably NOT made for the tourist trade.  The steel in these varies tremendously in quality, depending on the source.  Old bayonets [European] were a favoured source for blade steel in the last century;  now perhaps auto springs, as that's what the Nepali kukri makers prefer.

    Here's an example of a very similar blade, I think: http://www.collectarea.com/shop/afghan-khyber-knife-dagger-choora/
