Here is what I found:

Rostfrei is not a branded word for a German knife, but it is the German descriptive word for a knife made from stainless steel.

So in my ignorant opinion, someone bought a knife made in Germany
that must have been labeled Stainless steel. Maybe some how
you can find another marking on it to tell you who made the knife?

Edit: looking at the picture, there are other clues to who made the
knife. I would google those initials next the word knife to start with.

SAKs markings are both interesting and confusing at times.
Like fx77 said,older ones were marked Rostfrei, but more recently are marked Stainless.

There are also quite a few models marked with Officer Suisse on the back side of the main blade,leading alot of folks to think they have an Officers model.

To confuse things even more,some have the swiss cross and crossbow marks.

They can get confusing at times.

By the way Gaston...your knife was made by German company Genossenschaft Messerschmiede Leegebruch.
