What makes a War Razor better than a dagger, justifying Martial Proficiency?

I've searched other threads for an answer, and the consensus seems to be the +2 to Sleight of Hand checks to conceal it.

War Razor

To all appearances, a war razor is an oversized razor or flip knife. As the razor folds into the handle, no sheath is required, making the weapon easy to hide.

Description: You gain a +2 bonus on Sleight of Hand checks made to conceal the weapon on your body.

Weapon Feature(s): easily concealed

But so does a dagger:

A dagger has a blade that is about 1 foot in length.

Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on Sleight of Hand skill checks made to conceal a dagger on your body (see Using Skills).

The dagger bonus is also mentioned in the description for Sleight of Hand skill.

So, the only differences as far as I can tell are that the War Razor can't do piercing damage, is 4x the price of a dagger, needs martial proficiency, and lacks the dagger's 10' range increment.

Am I missing something?
