      Soy La Puerza = I am the Purity.

      Style normally referred to as an Arkansas Toothpick.

      Looks like it could be mid 1800s or so. Great find.

      Oy vey. First - the inscription on the blade is Soy la Fuerza, not puerza, so the translation is, from Spanish, "I am the Force" (which makes a lot more sense on a knife than "purity.") Second it's only an "Arkansas Toothpick" if it's an American knife, which this is not. Sorry bb. Based on the handle design it is what is typically called a "Canary Islands knife," and guess what language is spoken in the Canary Islands . . . . . Spanish!
