Obviously expensive bevel. but who made it?

Lots of brass and rosewood or other exotic wood but no marks.  Wonder who made it?

Hello, Coolford. I am guessing you already checked the blade for markings?? Regards, Lou

I have had quite a few similar bevels (non-Stanley, usually made in CT).  The markings were often lightly stamped on the wood.

Yes, checked the blade and the wood, cannot see anything that might be a mark.

Hello, Coolford. There is a similar one on ebay, seller has it listed as un-marked. Regards, Lou

I know we've all had this thought from time to time:

"Who in the world would make such a cool tool and not put their name on it?"
