Sales enquiries

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. Our price is £550. Please quote item reference number E69 - Box 828-0.5.
