WW2 British Commando F-S Fighting Knife,
1st Pattern, Sold.
A rare WW2 British Commando F-S Fighting Knife, 1st Pattern, by
Wilkinson Sword, in well used condition.
If you want a pristine 1st Pattern F-S knife, this is not for you.
If you want a guaranteed authentic and well used first pattern Fairbairn-Sykes,
one that was clearly involved in World War Two with a British commando,
this F-S is for you!
Well worn still sharp 5 7/8 inch blade with F-S Fighting Knife and
Wilkinson Sword logos only just visible, signs of use, well aged,
firm in the hilt / grip. The grip good though worn. Cross guard
has some wear / damage. The sheath shows this knife was worn / carried
/ used for a long time. Commandos regularly slightly shortened the
blades like this one in the sharpening process as a matter of personal
choice or due to losing the very tip in action (often slightly shorter
blades like this indicate a grisly history).
