Anybody Know The Maker?

I've got this tiny German knife and I've been driving myself crazy trying to figure out the maker. Please help. Thanks everyone.

Looks to be Korten. There was a maker in Germany with the name Korten & Scherf. Goins lists it but has no info.Levine doesn't even list it. Here is the knife.

Wow!! That's amazing. I didn't think t was that obscure. Do they have any value?

Because of the fact that the blade has been extensively sharpened,that the maker is not particularly collectible(unless you collect obscure brands as some do),the value is minimal.The plus factors are it is an interframe(bolsters and liners are one piece)and the handle material looks like it is ivory might make it worth slightly more.
