      These utility knives have been around so long that I don't think anyone knows who copied who. The handle material on your knife is Sanbar Stag, which is deer antler out of India. If you notice the texture is different on each side, this was done intentionally, mostly by German cutlers who took great pride in their hafting skills. That odd curved ancillary blade is a hoof pick, to pick stones from the horses hoof.
      Their should be at least one blade that is stamped on the knife tang with either manufacture or retailers name.
      Just guessing here, but I would say that the knife is German and dating early 1900's.
