I also pondered on that possibility, but then, it would be a rather atypical one. The point should not be so sharp and the side hook should be curved, not of such a rectangular plate shape.
The date is also worthy of note; GR under a crown doesn't match with either British King Georges... unless the date is not 1939 as thought. Otherwise this is a rather 'modern' implement.
Maybe when Ken has it in his hand he is able figure out the real date and the inscription wording ... a mark ?
