It's a ring hilted knife, such as were in use in Europe during the late iron age and Roman period. I don't know if there is a further typology for them. I've been searching for more references in literature describing them, but so far not much luck. The blade looks more curved upwards then the ones I've seen. But quite likely that's due to repeated wear and hammering the edge to sharpen it.
