That is a PRESTO knife made by George Schrade company. It was awarded a patent Jan 30, 1940 if I am reading the tang stamp correctly. IIRC, the patent had something to do with the guards built into the bolster.

<edit> NOPE! it was for the locking mechanism. See the link below for the actual patent.

George Schrade JAN 30, 1940 Patent

George Schrade was purchased by Boker in 1956, and closed in 1958 due to the anti-switchblade laws enacted that year in the U.S. So if you are looking for a manufacture date, it certainly lies between 1940-1958.

Thank you I'm going to clean it a little after watching some videos
