Sales enquiries

If you want a pristine 1st Pattern F-S knife (be warned about repros), this is not for you. If you want a guaranteed authentic and well used first pattern Fairbairn-Sykes, one that speaks to you of its involvement in World War Two with a British commando, this is for you!

Well worn still sharp 15.5 cm blade with Wilkinson Sword and F-S Fighting Knife logos only just visible, signs of use, well aged, firm in the hilt / grip. The grip good though worn with clear signs of dirty embedded sweat remaining. Cross guard has some plating loss / light rust. The sheath says everything about the fact this knife was worn / carried / used for a long time. Commandos regularly slightly shortened the blades like this one in the sharpening process as a matter of personal choice or due to losing the very tip in action (often slightly shorter blades like this indicate a grisly history).

Yours for £? (Too late, now sold). Please quote item reference N70 (1326). Full sized photos available upon request.
