    This is obviously a German pocket knife with what I think is a early passenger liner. It says MUNCHEN but I can't find a German passenger liner with that name. Maybe it's a Souvenir knife but would love to find out its age and what was it made for.

      Munchen is the German spelling for the city of Munich.

      The translation for Romanian to German is MUNCHEN, but there are two dots about the letter "U" and if you look real close at your knife you will see those two dots. From Romanian to English the translation is Munich. So I would search for a Romanian ship and see what you come up with

      I don't know the age but here's one that I posted a while ago, with some other knives, that's similar, different ship and name, but same knife! :^)
