    This was part of my Grandfather's WWII collection. Not sure if it is actually from that time or place. It looks to have a bone handle. Says Made in Mexico, Casa Charles. It is 13 inches long and has a gold tint to the blade. Any help on identifying this would be great.Click image for larger version.

    Well, the markings really says it all.
    Like the Sheffield Bowies exported to America (and then into Mexico), there was a huge influx of knives from Europe to South America - for example Argentina.
    The designs of knives in North America was at some point influenced by designs from the South.
    Knives were also made in the countries mentioned.
    The very elegantly flowing design of your knife makes it very Mexican in looks apart from the markings.
    Nice looking knife, I like it.
