I have seen knives from Pakistan that look better than this one, but you can still tell that they did not take the time to finish the knife properly. You will often see deep scratches in the blade, and the guard and handle where they changed from a very coarse abrasive to a much finer abrasive that couldn't remove the deep scratches left from the previous abrasive.
Often when you "Read the Knife" to borrow a phrase from Bernard Levine, you will see that the little details in the workmanship are often a more sure clue to the origin of the knife than a tang stamp or a signed COA!
