Thanks for replying TPK - me neither. And I am not successful finding it online. Hopefully, someone in this forum has seen it before. Cheers!

I believe the knife is Chinese of fairly recent manufacture. The mark looks similar to the Gerber mark & may have been used to give the impression Gerber made it. JMHO

The post above mine is from an esteemed knife man of high regard and is probably the one you want to listen to ::tu::

But i would add that i have a Japanese made knife from what i would assume to be the 60's that matches closely in style on the handle scales, bail and pins. Alas, I don't recognize the stamp ( though to me it looks like a japanese katakana) and the blades seem newer than my time range. And also the Chinese fob knives that I'm familiar with have circles around their stamps, i.e. crossed arrows, which lends further credence to knife7knut's assertion of Chinese origins.

That's my Etsy store where I sell old knives and sometimes handmade knife accessories to support my knife habbit. Thanks for looking my friend. ::tu::

Thank you so much for your estimation @knife7knut
Really appreciate it. At least it is giving me new direction where to search.

I'm not saying that I'm right, but the knife looks like a Chinese one. In China there is a company called Cloisonne knife with the stamp “two crossed arrows in a circle.” And you have a Chinese sword Jian in a circle. So it makes me think that this is China.
Best regards, Georgiy Velchev.

Did some searching in German. Came up with one interesting chart on Wikipedia but I didn't see your stamp on it. ::smirk::
