I came across tnis pocket knife recently and Imtotally confused. After extensive searches I can't seem to find anything like it. I thought maybe for leathetwork but no confirmation. The white extension seems to be bone. It does not fold. I hope I can post a picture... hmmm?

A Horticulturist's budding/grafting knife.

Thank you... It's been driving me crazy.

I'll look at it again but I believe it is fixed into position. I'll do a little research to learn all I can but I'm guessing it's nothing too special and I'll be going back to work again tomorrow. Can you elaborate a little more on how it's used? Thanks again in advance.

Welcome to KnifeForums.
Here’s probably more than you want to know from Levine’s Guide to Knives.
Your knife is a gunstock pattern with a fixed (not folding) spud as described in the last paragraph.

I guess what made me think it was a folder was the kick on the tang and the nail nick.
Of course there is no reason the blade couldn't be from stock and adapted to a FB.

It's a folder by nature. You can see the back spring is raised slightly. Try a little penetrating oil.
