    Good-day !!
    I had one of this variant a few years back.
    They seem to be attributed to far east ... and also aircrews have been mentioned. (Cold altitude and metal handles don't mix, although I can't see much hand to hand fighting going on at 30 thousand feet. !! ).

    Cheers

    Thanks Gary , yes some people are saying maybe "tropical" also ....
    I note the last ring on the wood is not as deep as the other rings


    Not enough info on this variation

    Wooden handle would have a better grip in the sweaty conditions.
    There is no doubt though, this is a legit variant !!!
