This makers brand corresponds to "Trompeta" and from what I could find out it was marketed by the Argentine firm Eberle. Here's a link in Spanish to the history of the maker and I have found an similar knife for sale advertised as an Eberle knife and bearing the same brand.

https://www.mundial-sa.com.ar/historia.php

Because of forum rules re items being currently auctioned or offered for sale I cannot give you the link, but if you Google "Cuchillo Trompeta Corno Eberle Facon 17,5 Cm" you may get lucky.

Cheers
Chris

Thank you so very much for your answer. I really appreciate it, Chris!

Anyway, I must admit that I am confused when it comes to the makers mark....
Found this one:

"MAKER'S PICTORIAL TRUMPET MARK (ELMO)"

Is it not strange that ELMO and EBERLE should use the same makers mark?

Best,
Stefan

If you do a search for "Eberle Elmo" you'll get a number of hits for knives on sale, so those two brand names are linked in some way. One such hit took me to Brazil, so there's a clue perhaps suggesting a joint venture.

Edit: Here's part of the answer https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metal...a_Abramo_Eberle

Edit: Website of Elmo which appears to be a different organization from Eberle: http://www.facacriolla.com.br/sobre-nos

However, it is entirely possible the Elmo or Eberle suppled each other with blades and were later marketed under their respective brands, a common practice in the cutlery industry. However it is likely that the brand of Elmo was mistakenly attributed by the seller to a knife made by Eberle as "Elmo in Portuguese translates as "Helmet" and the knives shown on their website do bear the mark of a helmet and not a trumpet.

Cheers
Chris

Again, thank you so very much, Chris!

I must admit that first I thought ELMO was not a company but just a sign what material it was in the blade.... ELMO INOX....

Well, it will be an interesting topic to to try research....

Best,
Stefan

INOX is shorthand for acero inoxidable which means stainless steel in Spanish.

Hi

ELMO in Portuguese, means YELMO, and denotes that it is the brand of the dagger and that stainless is used for the blade.

Hi

I forgot to say that here the figure of a YELMO is used to imitate some of the white weapons produced by Weyesberg, which in Castilian had the figure of a YELMO (helmet). and the word CASCO
