Need full pictures of the knife.
It appears to be an "Elosi" shell handled knife made for export to England.

Would agree with Bill. Does seem to be the Elosi tourist knife made in Germany.

Hi Bill, Here is a pic of the knife thanks for the input. you squeeze the little tabs at the rear of the knife and it pops open. Uses a coil spring tha compresses down under the blade
