ok, I have dug a bit in this and found a similar trademark

Especially this image on the pen box looks very much like the one on the blade.

 

The relevant extract here is: "It is interesting to note that this trade mark was also used by Carl Kuhn & Co in Austria, Carl Brandauer's Father-in-law."

 

The blade is very similar to Austrian WWI trench knives.

I think you have it figured out, Carl Kuhn & Co. Good detective work!
