German paratrooper knife.

i appreciate the response though
It's definitely some type of paratrooper knife, just not sure of its origin.
It is a Pantographic knife also known as Paratrooper knife. It uses a pantograph linkage to align the handles when opening and closing. A pantograph is a device used in manual drafting to make scale copies of original drawings. More than likely it is post WWII German production for the English speaking market.
It looks high quality.
