ID help needed please

I found this old knife inside an old chair. It was kind of built into the old fabric. Not like dropped but more sewn in kind of. I cant for the life of me find what it is. The blade has as best as i can tell Japan stamped on it. It appears to be pretty old and very thin kind of like a woman's knife or maybe a small fish knife not quite sure what to make of it. It is very well made has a good strong blade. the handle is wooden. and well worn. I have a few pictures of it here. I often find old knives and swords and odd things in my line of work hidden away in old houses in the walls, under floorboards etc. I can usually identify them but not this time. I am unsure if the knife is even worth my time. but I find something interesting about it.
I was going to add the images to this post but they were huge so decided to upload them and give the link

Interesting... at first glance it looks Japanese, maybe brought home after WW2.

A good friend told me one time about forging "What is there not to like, you get to break all the rules you were told as a kid, don't play with that it is sharp, don't play with fire, and don't beat on that"

See some of my work.
