WW2 F-S Knife Beaded Roped / Ringed / Ribbed
/ Ridges for sale.
In sound condition, a British marines / commandos Fairbairn Sykes
fighting knife, the rarer Beaded/Roped & Ribbed version with
the one piece cast hilt.
Guaranteed authentic WW2 British commando knife. The 6 15/16 inch
blade has the solid (cast) grip variation of the Beaded / Roped
/ Ringed / Ribbed / Ridges F-S hilt; not the most attractive of
hilts but of course absolutely solid and firm. For similar, see
plate 58 of Allied Military Fighting Knives. The knife is 12 1/54
inches long in total; everything firm of course. The original leather
sheath is well worn and aged, clearly this knife saw active service.
It would be easy to "clean" the blade and paint the hilt
/ grip, but we like this one just the worn way it is.
Such a rare (cast) version of the Fairbairn Sykes, we are under-pricing
this one at £500. Please quote item reference number H90.
