WW2 / George VI Royal Navy Midshipman's Dirk,
In very good, near mint condition, a WW2 / George VI Royal Navy
Midshipman's Dirk, etched to Wilkinson Sword.
This came to us with original packing grease to the blade, so it
was probably never sold or worn. No serial number, unless it is
hidden, so not possible to date exactly. Really supreme grey etching.
The 17 3/4 inch blade in superb condition, just a couple of specks
/ blemishes, and firm in the hilt. The fishskin grip and twisted
grip wire bindings in lovely condition. The gilt brass with some
blue oxidation, but very good. The scabbard with some air aging
/ fading, but very good. The original sword knot is equally very
good. The dirk sheathes and draws well, and the securing mechanism
Go on, just try and find another in such great original condition!
