Is this Sterling?

I am having a hard time finding information on this knife I bought today. It is stamped with a triangle then the letter s followed by another triangle Pat.08 R. Harris and Co. My question is if this is a sterling or plate knife. Thank you for any help.

This is an electroplate mark of the E H H Smith Co of Bridgeport CT. R Harris & Co would have been the retailer.
