This badly treated electrician's knife dates to 1967, with the date and phaeon (broad arrow) markings as shown. There is also the military serial number, 910-5285 stamped into the delrin scale, can be seen in centre pic.
Maker was A. Wright & Son, Sheffield.
These are still used today, as can be seen in the photo supplied. It has been heavily ground and sharpened to turn it into n edged blade, which actually makes it useful as a whittling knife for me.
It is really sharp, and the most difficult to open and close I own, due to the very strong spring. It could almost be classed as a locking knife, it is so hard to close!
Thanks for looking, Bob.
