I’m looking for some information on a knife that I just got and any information would help.
It’s a fixed blade with antler handle on the right side of the blade its marked “Othello Solingen germany and has a bust of a man” on the left side its marked “Anton Wingen Jr
Solingen Germany”
Thanks for the help

Does it have a sheath with it? Does it look more like a hunting knife or a table carving knife?
Some knives are made for the tourist trade (cheap) and some are made for actual everyday use (higher priced)

Anton Wingen Jr has been making knives of all kinds for many years.
Germany if famous for antler or bone handled knifes
Do a Google search of Anton Wingen Jr and you will find lots of further info.

It has a sheath and is a hunting/skining blade. I did a google but didn't find as much info as I had hoped for.
