Nice blade ... I like the look of the upswept blade, downturned handle.

Your knife looks to have a brass escutcheon plate (?), type 1 stamp... which probably dates it to early 1966 almost exactly...I mean within about 3-4 months. That is the calendar overlap from the first appearance of brass escutcheon plates that I can document, and the end of the use of type 1 stamps. Remarkable...(but if that is not brass, just some oxidized coating, then the date could easily be early '60s). No matter, cool knife.
