Short of uncovering a makers mark, there’s not likely to be a way to identify it, but I suppose anything is possible. When it comes out of the evaporust you may be able to identify the line between the high carbon steel lamination and the rest, and you may be able to identify a line or ridge in the socket that would show it was hand forged. Those bits of information can help date it, but not something I can put numbers to.
