I recently acquired this knife which is soundly built. The actual handle appears to be made of "bone". Heavy (5 ounces) and very tight. On the blade is "Compass" and the other side is Pakistan Stainless Steel. I am looking for information on this knife as it appears vintage and I can't find a single similar item. Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Gary

    I figured the blade out when I tried to sharpen it. It just seemed like such a find, with the design and bone handle. Oh well. Back to searching.... Thanks much.

    I actually own this same knife. I Googled it(the knife) exactly as you explained it and found your post. I too found my knife not from a dealer but at a yard sale, 3 bucks. It seems as you say. Good blade, well made, heavy and has good balance. My "bone" handle is missing a small piece in the right lower part by the last rivet of the right side of the handle. Not sure if it is bone. I too could use more info.
