First of all, let me welcome you to AAPK. Glad to have you.

As for the knife, the only thing I can say is, to me the fork makes it look really old. Like draw a big circle around 1900, old. I don't recognize that tang stamp but maybe someone else will. Good luck

Long shot guess at eastern Europe or maybe Turkish, near east. It's old enough that the dermestid ("carpet") beetles have eaten the horn scales. Neat old piece. J.O'.
