Sales enquiries

If you want pristine, never been out of the UK, then this one is not for you. If you want a 1st Pattern that saw active combat, welcome! The sheath is a later addition, perhaps by the commando himself, but the F-S knife is 100% period and authentic.

The 6 1/8 inch (156mm) service length blade is aged and worn (etching worn / feint) and a little battered but sound and firm in the hilt. The hilt is also well worn but good, all tight. The later replacement sheath has age and wear but is good; the dagger is very tight when fully sheathed. This Fairbairn Sykes has been around, probably Italy and France. Fairbairn Sykes 1st patterns often go for £2000 at auction, which makes our prices of only £1100 the bargain of the year. Please quote item reference AE42. Full sized photos available upon request. Package 0848.
