Picked this up a few months ago, I believe its original, It was said to be a trade Knife to Native Americans, anyone have any other information on this, I am guessing its Early 19th century.

Table knife. Late 19th, maybe early 20th century. Someone more familiar with the marks may be able to date it more precisely.

This one has a completely different handle, but the same bevel on the spine of the blade that yours has.

I have one that was a carving knife with a stag handle. Blade was broken so re shaped to a small belt knife. Markings were not hurt.

Looks a lot like an ordinary table knife to me. It may not be very old (e.g. ca. 1940-50). Interested to see what others have to say about it.
