I found maybe a bargain or a return to thrift store. The knife says Moravan, Molybdenum vanadum.
I will have to check the price I paid. It has wooden handle. Looks well used. It looks like a knife that chefs use to chop fast with. Maybe 6" long. No other details. Didn't see a similar one online. Thanks.

Molybdenum (pronounced /məˈlɪbdənəm/, from the Greek meaning "lead-like"), is a Group 6 chemical element with the symbol Mo and atomic number 42. It has the sixth-highest melting point of any element, and for this reason it is often used in high-strength steel alloys. Molybdenum was discovered in 1778 by Carl Wilhelm Scheele and first isolated in 1781 by Peter Jacob Hjelm.
In its pure metal form, molybdenum is silvery white and very hard, though it is somewhat more ductile than tungsten. It has a melting point of 2623°C, and only tantalum, osmium, rhenium, and tungsten have higher melting points.
Molybdenum burns only at temperatures above 600°C. It also has the lowest heating expansion of any commercially used metal.
Molybdenum has a value of approximately $65,000 per tonne as of 4 May 2007It maintained a price at or near $10,000 per tonne from 1997 through 2002, and reached a high of $103,000 per tonne in June 2005
