Sales enquiries

The 6 3/4 inch blade has clearly been sharpened and "cleaned" a few times. The Wilkinson logo is still quite visible, but the F-S logo can barely be seen. The "Y" shape ricasso shows this to be a hand ground blade. The copper hilt has the remains of the war time black paint. The leather sheath is in good condition, though the "tabs" or "wings" are deteriorated, clearly having been used for the purpose they were intended (the stitching hole line is very apparent, so this knife was worn with the sheath stitched to an item of the commando's clothing. There is very slight movement of the blade in the hilt, but very slight. A great example. Full sized images available upon request. Please quote item reference D99(827)
