It looks like the bottom line is "Sheffield". Can you use a loupe and make out what is stamped in the 2 lines over Sheffield ?
I don't recognize the name.

There was a Charles Gray and Sons out of St Philips Works in Sheffield from the mid to late 1800's. That knife might have been made there.

I think Ea42 has ID'd your knife. There is no information about a "Bray" associated with knives, so it almost certainly is "Gray".
Well done Eric !
