    I've been asked whether there is any engraved number on the blade, Syledis.

    Could you check that, please ?

    It should have a 6 digit number (maybe starting with 0's) at the base of the blade below the "BMF".......
  11. The number is 041938

    I think that is about 1990 manufacture, don't have a reference to hand....

    Thank you for checking, Syledis. :)

    The first two numbers indicate the year the knife was manufactured.
    First year of production was 1986, so this should be from 1989.
