WW2 F-S Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife 2nd
In good overall condition, an issued (B mark with Broad Arrow
mark) British WW2 commando's Fairbairn Sykes fighting knife.
A very good example, though the hilt / grip is a little loose.
The wings of the scabbard have been period removed, so it was a
commando knife. The 6 1/4 inch blade is in good condition, has the
"Y" shaped forte that shows it was a hand ground blade
(not a later machine ground blade), as is the rest of the knife.
The knife is 11 1/4 inches long in total. The sheath is aged and
worn. Our price for this is £(too late - now sold, but we
will disclose the original selling price for a small fee). Please
quote item reference number J10 (1104). Further / full sized images
available upon request.
