Norwegian Independence

This somewhat worn knife says "Jubilaeum sutstilling 1914" on the obverse and "Akershus" on the reverse. The blade is marked TRIO.

The knife is celebrating 100 years of independence from Denmark. Akershus is the name of the "fylke" (county) in which Oslo is located. It is also the name of an old castle in Oslo which is often used for various public events. The large grounds around the castle no doubt hosted part of the 1914 celebration.
