Hi, can anybody help identify this knife,

It belonged to somebody who was in the raf, and was given to me, told it was from ww2

Can't find any info, doesn't' have any markings.

The blade itself looks old

I would like to sell it, but wouldn't know where to sell it to, or if it had a value

I do like it though ! 

Many thanks

This is a Private Purchase non-military knife......   It may have been used but was not issued.......

Pretty sure that if this was in any way a World War 2 issue knife it would have the War Department 'crows foot' mark or Air Ministry mark somewhere on it. Any marks visible at all?

It's what we on this side of the Atlantic call a 'hunting knife', which QSA Mike alludes to.  Hundreds of models and sold in any sports store, so it's likely that many found their way to Europe [or were made in Brimingham] with private soldiers, but definitely not an issue item and, I think, unlikely to have been made in Europe or the other theatres in which the Allies fought.
