Interesting hunting knife. The hole in the blade to accommodate the sear pin is a different approach. Is it really a spring knife?

Probably never saw Sheffield. Most likely born somewhere in the Indian Subcontinent.

Here's a link to one with stag handles made the same way by a different maker.

The sear is just for locking the blade down in the handle. No springer.
