In response to Rich S
Thanks for the info guys, from the appearance of the knife i already thought it came from the 50's.
BTW: this is how the knife looks now.
I renewed the edge on my Tormek T7 wet sharpener, and i'm still in the process of giving the rest of the blade somewhat of a satin finish.
The fiber in the guard and below the butt had swollen a bit, so i sanded it flush with the brass and did some polishing:
Overall length: 23,5 cm
Blade length: 12,1 cm
Blade thickness: 3,2 mm
Steel: Carbon steel
Handle material: Stag grip panels, brass & fiber guard, aluminium butt.
Weight: 140 grams
Sheath: Leather with metal rim
