I would either:

– Look up steel vendors at your local faires (find someone who forges their own steel, not the people who resell ones from China)

or

– Google “medieval replica daggers” or something like that

Museum Replicas does really nice work. We have a (very sharp) katana from there.

I would be cautious with By The Sword. I bought some shoes from them and it took months and numerous calls to get them. So unless you have plenty of time and don’t mind crappy customer service, look elsewhere for your knife. 

Try to sneakily find out who exactly made his custom swords and see if that could be an option!

Being a fan of most things sharp and pointy and shiney too… awesome gift idea!  I’ve know people who bought from both places below repeatedly and never had a product or service issue… I think they are related or were.

Museum Replicas has a lot of medieval stuff, I had a look and this looks awesome, I’d love to have it:  http://www.museumreplicas.com/p-1967-damascus-sgian-dubh.aspx

Atlanta Cutlery has some neat stuff, here’s a link to their site after searching damascus blades:

http://knives.atlantacutlery.com/search?SearchTerm=damascus%20blades

From these if he would best like a daggar I’d pick this on the second page: http://www.atlantacutlery.com/p-935-damascus-boot-dagger-blade.aspx  It doesn’t have a handle really but one could be made for it, or it could be as is since it’t meant to be a boot dagger.
