Back when it was made, aluminum was considered to be high end, and it did not rust or even tarnish. Levine gives 1910 as the date for "Duralumin Alloy", but about 1886 for aluminum use. This might help to date the knife but what is Duralumin ?
Chipaway could be Sheffield, German or USA made. To me this looks like a USA made knife.

Duralumin is an aluminium/copper alloy.
