I found this knife while camping in the 60's and used it for years as a Boy Scout. Just found it again while going through old camping stuff. It is marked DECORA-SOLINGEN made in Germany D.B.G.M. Any info on it would be appreciated.

Awesome to find a knife like that!

Welcome to knifeforums!

Old Solingen knives are very common and of low collectors value.
They were made and sold by the ton after WW II.

Yours looks very nice though, with the antlercrown and cap.

Enjoy it!

I believe it was, probably, made around 1910.

Oops!

If so it only makes it more interesting, but it's still a factory made knife.

Thanks guys, I like the knife and it is interesting that it is so old. I will continue to use it as a general camp knife, it's light and holds an edge well.

Since it has the D.B.G.M. stamp it's made after 1950.

I KNEW I should have checked that!!!!!
All my references for Decora said early 20th Century.

For others, the stamp refers to a registered design by the postwar Fed German Government.
