Here's another possible match... another perfect match, blade and handle identical, but, stamps do not correspond  :-\

What is interesting is the knife has gradually been filed down, which means that this knife was seriously used and over a very, very long time... Considering that there has been activity at St. Lucia since the early 1800's one can only surmise what this knife was used for.. https://stluciasa.com/about-st-lucia/history-st-lucia/

...the handle is 'spot-on', the base of the blade shape is almost identical, however, the manufacturers stamp is not the same  ???

...the 'spoon' is busy being cleaned and making good progress  :o Amazing to see the copper shining through  8)



...the small bone handled knife is just as impressive  :o I can see what appears to be a stamp of sorts and the word 'Firth Stainless', which I'll research  8)
