WW2 era / George VI British Royal Navy Midshipman's
In very good condition, a WW2 era / George VI British Royal Navy
Midshipman's Dirk etched to maker Wilkinson Sword (but without serial
Clearly an authentic period RN Midshipman's Dirk but possibly if
not probably made by someone other than Wilkinson Sword as there
is no serial number. Quite a common practice during WW1 but less
so WW2 was for a tailor who got an order from an RN officer specifically
for a Wilkinson to ask the maker they used to etch it to Wilkinson
Sword. In any event, this is a very well made period dirk.
The 17 7/8 inch blade is well / quality etched, in very good condition
and firm in the hilt. The hilt and grip all very good, as are the
twisted grip wire bindings. Knot good. The scabbard has some age
lines but is very sound. The locking mechanism works well. The dirk
sheathes and draws well.
A very nice dirk and in above average condition; yours for £?
