This dagger is a replica of the Nasrid jineta like the one the last king in Granada (Spain), King Boabdil, possessed. He was the last Muslim king in Spain after the capture of Granada on January 2, 1492 by the Catholic Monarchs.
Throughout time, its name has been given as a reference to this type of grip.
The qualifying jineta responds to a type of genuinely Nasrid production sword, introduced in Al-Andalus by the Zenatas.
It was therefore the new war technique of the Muslim cavalry adopted later by the Christian kingdoms that led to the development of the swords in Al-Ándalus (Granada above all), more in line with the type of struggle that revolutionized the wars of conquest and reconquers peninsular.
