I love these. If it is marked Plata, on the scabbard, the fittings are silver. If marked Alpaca, fittings are nickel silver. (alloy of copper and nickel) Nice carbon steel blade makes a good knife.
Others know more and can tell you more.

Hello

As the seal says, it is from the Argentine industry, produced by the firm JU _CA. It is at most, from the middle of the previous century. Apparently, the cord is a measure of security, when the knife comes out of the sheath, and to attach it to the belt, "shooter" Affectionately

Thumbs up

I have a nice little Ju Ca that I use quite frequently, actually weekly.
It works quite well on my roast beef where we dine on Fridays.

Hi Stefan,

A very nice knife!

The firm of Ju-ca was established in 1959 in Tandil Buenos Aires Argentina and this is their website : http://ju-ca.com.ar/2016/03/31/hello-world/
