Welcome to talk blade, can you post pictures of any writing on the blade and the overall length of the knife?

Very cool old Flat Guard!!! I would say that knife falls into a category of being made just before or just after WWII. I have an 8" that has very similar features to this one. Your knife has a decent blade, great horn scales, and cool big buttons. On the other end the pivot pin is not original, back spring is rusty and bent. Hell of a find, it just needs some TLC
