im not sure what type of wood this is... looks like rosewood to me.
its stamped ERN Solingen. and gusstahl. gusstahl isn't a makers mark . its a metal identification mark. gusstahl simply means cast steel in german. ive read only the top quality products carried the gusstahl proof marks. this knife still has the machining marks along its blades length. it has a excellent snap on all its blades and the wood is flawless.
very happy to add this old bar tenders knife to my collection. im loving it !
