### NEW LISTING ### 26/2/16RARE MANUFACTURER VICTORIAN ? / EDWARDIAN / WW1 ERA BRITISH MILITARY FOLDING THREE BLADE LOCK KNIFE MADE BY THOMAS WILSON OF SYCAMORE STREET SHEFFIELD (1750 - 1903 ?).
Overall "Been There" but reasonable condition
Typical British Army Issue of the Victorian Edwardian / / WW1 period but the maker stamped on the blade "Thomas Wilson Sheffield" is one of the rarer manufacturers stamps particularly on military knives. Apparently Thomas Wilson was part of the Wilson Family but their knives are often stamped "J" or sometimes "I" Wilson. Its difficult to get a date on Wilson Military Knives and "Wilson" generally is quite a rare Sheffield Manufacturer who alledgedly went out of business in 1903....please refer Ron Flooks excellent book "BRITISH AND COMMONWEALTH MILITARY KNIVES" page 247,... although this is the pattern originally designated 1905 pattern....confusing !
Only marking is the manufacturers name on the main blade and Sheffield.
Typically Victorian British military folding three blade knife with a main blade about 8.5 cm long with s spear point can opener and long marlin spike blade...and the classic British Military Copper Shackle for this pattern of knife .
The main blade is the usual length for this type of knife but point may have been shortened.
