I found this in my late grandfather's tackle box after he passed away in 2004. I don't know how old this is, so if anybody knows that would be helpful. The largest blade is marked Regent Japan, and the other side of the same blade has what appears to be a cat, which you can see in the 3rd pic. I haven't been able to find out anything about this, but I am mainly interested in discovering it's age and if it is pearl or not. Thanks all!

    Yes, Mother of pearl scales, likely 70s ish.

    Also, the knife pattern is a variation of a Stockman.

    Agreed, imitation Mother of Pearl. Clearly worth a great deal more to me than it ever will be to anyone else.

    Drop it to check on whether it's MOP or plastic. ;-))

    Just kidding on the drop it remark ;-)) Tap it on your teeth, you'll be able to tell if it's plastic or MOP, plastic feels soft.
