Korean Agricultural Knife?

I came across a knife when cleaning out the in-laws garage.
Is is stamped Korea on the blade. It is curved like this knife:


But is sharpened on the outside of the curve. It is a partial tang And has lead on the pommel I would assume for balance.

Any clues on what the knife is for?
Because of the "korea" stamp does that indicate manufacture prior to 1945?

How do i post pictures on this thread?

That's common around here.

They are either uninterested or don't have an answer for you.

What you have pictured looks like a carpet layer's knife, but if the one you reference has the outside curve sharpened, then it could be a simple utility blade that just happens to have a very swept point.
That's just a guess.

What you probably have is a stain glass lead came cutting, and working knife, of the herder design. The lead weight on the end is used for tapping in horseshoe nails into a stain glass layout board. I have the same knife blade design, but marked Don Carlos, with a Korea stamp. I can think of 10 other uses for your knife, right of the top off my head, as well. PS: It is probably Vintage 1970's from what i found.
