Welcome to the forums! I have the identical knife and I thought at first it might be of Japanese origin but someone has told me that it is probably Russian made in the 1960's or 70's.

It's not Russian, Ray. I think it's Chinese.

Good to hear! My mantra is:" I am vertical;taking nourishment;can still tell the meat from the potatoes;and I can still remember my name.....occasionally". If I can meet those criteria each day then I am satisfied. As the Vulcan Mr. Spock says in the Star Trek series:" Live long and prosper!"
