Eye Witness is the mark of Taylor. Taylor made the standard issue knife which had blade, tin opener and spike and possibly the version with blade and opener only. Are there any other marks? Date or /|\? If there are no other marks my guess would be it is post war using left-over wartime parts and sold on the civilian market.

I’m unfamiliar with where the /I\ would be, but I see nothing.

Normally on the ricasso of the blade. Probably opposite side from the name.
