Q:
Dietrud,
this is a British Army pattern clasp knife dating from WW2. The standard bakelite black grips have probably been replaced with wood scales. The sheepsfoot blade, heavy duty can opener, Marlin spike and fixed screw driver at the apex are very characteristic. They are still manufactured today in Sheffield. Definitely no connection to the Swiss army. - Asked by urw1

My description as a Swiss army knife was mainly due to it's foldable nature and not with it's relationship to the Swiss. I had no idea where the knife actually came from or what type of knife it was. Thanks for the info. I'll update the description.
