I know about dragon hide and dragon hide armor, but does "Xtahua" dragon hide do anything special, or is it just normal dragon hide?

Yes, you get more hits in per turn. A dagger of speed with haste isn't very good, even with might. It'll takes a long time to kill anything dangerous in melee. You'd be better off finding a sabre of speed or a branded quickblade. Being a SpEn, I'm pretty stabber-focused, so a branded quickblade is ...
