    VERY RARE, ‘FORERUNNER OF THE MODERN SURVIVAL KNIFE’, Original, Colonel Baldock 1902 Patent All Steel Construction Survival ‘Knife Spear’ By James Dixon & Sons Sheffield For Walter Locke & Co London With Original Scabbard. Sn 12167 - 12167

    Developed by Colonel Baldock of the Merwara Battalion of Queen Victoria's Indian Army in the 1870s and patented by him in 1902, this is the forerunner of all modern day Combat/Fighting/Survival Knives. With an inspired development Colonel Baldock introduced this all steel fearsome knife which easily converts to a spear with the attachment of any handy wood pole or branch that might be found in the field. The hilt is all Steel with a floating knurled collar that, when secured in the rear position, will lock onto any wood shaft pushed into the hollow adjustable tubular hilt by means of internal securing spikes. The locking mechanism resembles that of the old muzzle loading socket bayonet attachment. British Gunsmiths Walter Locke & Co 391 Strand, London C1892-C1920 were primarily known as the outlet for Baldock Knife Spears (see page 99 & 100 of The London Knife Book By Flook. Page 99 of the book shows an image of the Baldock knife Spear & Scabbard. The page is illustrated in image 2). These rare knives are sometimes found with the Baldock and Walter Locke names or with a licenced manufacturer name on the blade, however it is very rare to find examples with Baldock, Walter Locke & Co and a manufacturer name all on one blade. This is an excellent original example of the Baldock Patent Knife Spear. It has the correct all steel hollow hilt with floating collar which works correctly, a small oval brass finger guard and measures 14” overall. The 9” spear point blade has fullers and a deep 4” saw back section on the back edge. The blade is crisply marked ‘Baldock Knife Spear Made Expressly For Walter Locke & Co Ltd Patented’ and with the rare to find additional licenced manufacturer’s name ‘James Dixon & Sons, Sheffield, England’. The knife is complete with its original brown leather riveted and stitched scabbard which has a single belt loop to the rear and tooled foliate decoration to the front. All leather and stitching of the scabbard are intact. Price for this rare survival knife with scabbard includes UK delivery. Sn 12167
