No Name German 72 Clone

No tang stamp with Solingen Germany on the pile side. Synthetic handles (Delrin® ?) ::shrug:: and fairly rough fit & finish. Anyone want to hazard a guess what factory this came out of?

In hand, I think it bears a close resemblance to my German Olsen and my German (L)Amplough.

Jerryd that is an odd looking pattern on the match strike pull. More like the first knife than the second but still not quite the same. I wouldn't have a clue as to the factory it came from though. Good find! ::tu::
