    ### NEW LISTING ### 26/1/16

    WWII SOE ( SANITISED & UNMARKED) ESCAPE AND EVASION ALL STEEL LARGE FOLDING CLASP KNIFE THIS PATTERN OF KNIFE ALSO USED BY THE WW2 RAF AND OSS.

    Overall parkerised protective coating...for condition please refer main description.

    The majority of these knives offered for sale on the collectors market have large Air Ministry Markings in the centre of the handle
    ... but this one was probably intended for SOE use as unusually has no markings of any type whatsoever or "Sanitised" to use SOE parlance

    The knife has a strong 9.6cm spear point blade and a very strong robust spike as a second blade about 8.9cm long,

    This knife when closed about 12.1cm and open about 30.5cm.

    Discussed and pictured in Ron Flook's book "British and Commonwealth Military Knives" (pages 148 and 149) and also in Silvey's book "Knives of the United States Military World War II" (page152).

    An interesting mark of history is the slight wear to the coating by the thumbnail indent on the large blade where the the blade has been repeatedly gripped to be opened.Some rust spots to one side of the handle with some fine rust spots to the other side and on the tops of the blade...otherwise a good strong snap to both blades which apart from the tops dont have any rusting and the knife overall retains most of its original parkerised coating

    You must be at least 18 years of age to buy this item.

    Delivery: UK £ 7.50 by Signed Delivery
    Will courier Worldwide... if overseas please email for a quote.

    As a collector I like to treat people as I would like to be treated,if you are not entirely satisfied with a purchase you can return the item for a refund, but we do not refund delivery cost.Thanks.
