Hello, welcome to the forum!

Looks like a post-WW2 piece to me; blade is not a toy though. How does it feel in the hand?

Regards,
Kai

Welcome to the forum!
Agree with Kai that the blade seems very well made. What bother me is the handle. It look like painted with a tarnish of shellac and like it is not attached strong to the blade. Maybe a later replacement?

Regards,

Detlef

I have seen WWII pieces like this with this type of handle. It is WWII or after.

Ah yes, I wondered who got this one as I bid on it as well.
But fortunately, I got one of his other ones.

Neat looking piece! Congrats, think it is around 1910-1930 but other will give you a better opinion about the age.
