WW2 J Clarke & Son 2nd Pattern Fairbairn-Sykes
Fighting Knife, Sold
In used condition, a rare WW2 J Clarke & Son 2nd Pattern F-S
/ Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife.
This is a rare unmarked WW2 J Clarke & Son 2nd Pattern F-S
/ Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife. You can tell it was made by Clarkes
of Sheffield as it has their unique 'reversed' knurled brass grip.
The 6 3/4 inch blade is clearly hand made with an almost wootz
type appearance. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt with some knocks
and dents; clearly this knife saw active service. Sheath in fair
though aged condition, maybe a later period replacement. Grab it
quick; £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference
U37 (0845). Full sized photos available upon request.
