Thumbs down Unknown knife

So I found this knife on the garbage and I?m trying to know a little more about her history and roots, if anyone recognizes her I?m from Portugal but i think this is not a portuguese knife and the blade length is 7cm. Thanks for the attencion and hope to find more soon

German-made Okapi. I think the last German ones were in 1987.

Thanks for the info Mark, you?re right, it?s probably an okapi knife (searched after your answer ehehe) the only thing that puzzles me is that my knife is basically the same as the other okapi?s except the fact that there is only one star instead of three, maybe an older version, i don?t know ...

I would assume it's just an older one. There are plenty of German made Okapi with three stars....maybe at some point in past the addition of the extra stars coincided with a "three star" product being better than a "one star" product?
