A quick reverse image search revealed that your knife is most likely a JHO Knives Model GS-1. If so, it apparently originally retailed for $260 USD and was available in a variety of blade and handle finishes. The knife’s blade is made from CPM S35VN steel and the handle is titanium. The purchase price included a carrying case, a set of two Torx mini-screwdrivers (T6 & T8), and a spare set of Teflon bushings. “GS” was reputedly an abbreviation for “Gentleman’s Slasher”. The knife is no longer listed on JHO’s website.
