I must admit when I first saw it I thought , letter oipener or presentation piece as has benn said , though very often the whole thing is silver rather than just the handle. It could be British in the sense that it was made outside the UK and imported for whatever reason ... sometimes a retailer would import foreign items like this to sell on after badges or engravings were added . To me , the font used on the 'STERLING' looks 20th century ... but I am no expert .
