Has no manufacturer's markings, but as judged by rivets layout, is very similar to knives made by J. Russel Co.. It's a simple manufactured knife, whose style has a look of the typical late 19th century American frontier knife.

The manufactured knife should not to be confused with the trade knife. These knives were manufactured by American companies with primary sales going to households as kitchen ware. They were the last knives on the American frontier. They were easily available and thus found their way into many a beaded sheath.
