Unhappy Toscaz Knife

I have an old (?) cutlery knife with a curved blade, 14" long, wooden handle with 3 rivets, a hole 3" back from the point (presumeably for hanging). It has, on the back of the blade:
A "full elephant" and below that "TOSCAZ". I can not find it anywhere on line or in the numerous knife books I own. Help!

I have a 14 inch curved knife that I used when I worked in the packing house 45 years ago. They were used for cutting (breaking) beef into primal cuts (round, chuck, etc.), they were therefore called breaking knives. They probably are still used. I have no idea about the brand TOSCAZ, or the elephant.

Thanks Bigjim. You make me think I'm on the right trail. I have even tried different languages.
