    British Post WW2 3rd Pattern Fairbairn Sykes FS Commando Fighting Knife By William Rodgers, Sheffield With Etched Blade ‘22nd SAS Rgt Oman 1973’ & Scabbard. Sn 12766 - 12766

    The Dhofar Rebellion was launched by rebels in the province of Dhofar against the Sultanate of Muscat and Oman, which had Iranian and British support, from 1962 to 1976. It ended with the defeat of the rebels, but the state of Oman had to be radically reformed and modernized to cope with the campaign. During the Rebellion two squadrons of the British Special Air Service (SAS) were deployed to support Oman Forces and were involved in hard fighting. In 1972, Nine SAS military advisors who were engaged in training Oman forces valiantly defended an attack by Rebels at what is now known as the Battle Of Mirbat. This is an original 3rd Pattern Fairbairn Sykes fighting knife. The 3rd pattern knife was introduced during WW2 in 1942 and continued to be issued Post war into the modern era (see Chapters 8 and 11 of Flook’s book ‘The Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife & Other Commando Knives’). This Post WW2 example is contemporarily marked to commemorate the SAS deployment in Oman. It has the correct ribbed, blackened alloy handle with oval cross guard. The cross guard is stamped by the manufacturer ‘William Rodgers, Sheffield, England’. It has a blackened 175mm blade with medial ridge. One side is etched ‘22nd SAS Rgt (Regiment) Oman 1973’. It is complete with original leather scabbard with external brass chape and single belt loop. It is without its 4 sewn on tabs and has an elasticated retaining strap. All leather & stitching are intact. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 12766
