    Yell at it in German if it runs away it's definitely French. To our French friends it was just a joke don't get your panties in a knot.

    Ha! The part they will be most angry about is that you called them out for wearing panties!

    I think Louper is short for Louis Perlamann which is a German maker.

    Weltschliff on the scales suggests German origin as well. Welt meaning world, schliff meaning grind. I'm not sure how to translate the words combined other than something like "Excellent grind".

    If it doesn't understand, then it was probably manufactured in the U.S.
