Hey SK;
Its been awhile, got this a few days ago in a box lot. Its a finedge imported from germany in the 20's. The blade profiles like they have never been used. Some pitting, slams open and closed like a door. Check the size of those springs. You definitely want to keep it oiled. Stamp says the reference is Ostiso. Have a calm winter.

Hi WB. That is a great looking knife. I don't think I have ever seen springs that size relative to the scales. It looks near new. Thanks very much for the message. Take care, s-k
