Very difficult to say but from my experience I would estimate the knife to be from the 60's to early 70's most likely but possibly older from the late 50's.
That is not much help but these knives were unchanged for over two decades. We still see this handle material on these older knives so it must be fairly durable.

Being made in Germany it will have superb steel in the blade. Very nice old knife. The bail would have been most useful in a boat or near water.

To totally complicate dating [generally] after 1949 item were stamped West Germany [or W. Germant] to indicate it was not from the commies there are LOTS of exceptions. Also that applies to items imported to the U.S. :? If I recall, I saw very similar ones in the 50s.
