Looks interesting - can we have a close-up of the makers mark, please?
Thank you for taking the time to Analyze This. This is my first time on this forum. I am more interested in the markings on the handle and what they mean. However, it is also good to know the makers marks as well.
"ERN" represents C. Friedr. Ern, based in Solingen (a major centre of German bayonet/sword/cutlery manufacture).
I cannot read the text above FABRIK (factory); perhaps you could either chalk the stamping or lightly oil it.
The rest I leave to Trajan.
The symbol above "ERN" should be a hand holding a turban.
Well done JMB - it is RAISIERMESSER/FABRIK - standing for 'razor-blade makers', i.e., cut-throat razors, I think.
The letters stamped in the handle? No idea, quite honestly - well, not as yet... Perhaps a cocktail will help (yes, sun over yardarm here!)
Definitely a cocktail will give one a fresh perspective! LOL! The symbols on the handle are what intrigues me. I hope someone sees this who knows how to interpret them.
