I'm from Amsterdam in The Neherlands. Bastet was one of the oldest cutlery stores around there for over threehundred years. It's history goes all the way back to the 1600's. It closed in 1984. They were famous for dealing (or making???) table spoons, forks and knives to the Royal Family. The first time that I see a switchblade with Amsterdam stamped in it. :shock: It is most probably made in Belgium. They had a way much bigger cutlery industry.

Great piece.... :D
