WW2 British Commando's F-S Fighting Knife
2nd Pattern, B2, sold
In very good condition, an issued (B2 Broad Arrow) blackened British
WW2 commando's Fairbairn Sykes fighting knife.
There is debate over whether these "B2" F-S fighting
knives were made by Wilkinson Sword or to their design by the Birmingham
Small Arms factory. The blade has the y-shape ricasso and the does
look every part a Wilkinson except for no name markings, so the
debate continues. Either way, this is 1 100% authentic WW2 British
Commando's fighting knife; it was issued and the blade was sharpened.
The 17cm blade is still nicely blackened, the hilt has lost some
blackening due to being held of course. Everything firm and nice.
The correct B2 broad arrow mark and pommel nut indent confirm this
is 100% authentic, and yes, we guarantee this. A really well above
average example, the missing sheath "wings" or tabs show
this was worn by a commando, not by a SOE. Please quote item reference
number E69 (828). Further / full sized images available upon request.
