Vintage Estwing Knife - weird handle, help please

Found this in a box lot at auction, can anyone tell me how old it is.

The only thing that is marked Estwing is the holder.

This knife is approximately 8 1/2" in length.

At auction it should sell for $25-$45. I would start it at $20.

I don't want to sell it, I'm trying to identify anything I can about it, i.e., who made it, etc. Any thoughts there. Also any thoughts on the handle, its kind of weird.

Okay, does anyone know when this knife might have been made. I guess I can assume since the sheath is Estwing that the knife must be too. I have researched my brains out and am coming up with nothing. Any direction you can turn me to would be great. Thank you

Try Estwing the hammer and hatchet folks-the handles are similar.

I did, I emailed them, hopefully I will get some information, we were just trying to figure out how old it was. Someone we know said 1940-1950's but we just wanted some confirmation.

Hi I have seen a number of these for sale they seem to have been made in Finland with a carbon steel blade and they appear to be still available in that part of the world. The leather washer handle is typical of Estwing's classic handled tools which are still manufactured today in the USA
