**RARE**NOT SEEN BEFORE**AIR MINISTRY MARKED**WW2 Wood Hilt Fairbairn- Sykes, FS Far East Commando & RAF Pilot’s Fighting Knife & Scabbard. Sn 18500 - 18500

An original WW2, FS Far East Operations dagger and correct scabbard in very good condition (see pages 133 to 137 of The Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife & Other Commando Knives By Flook). The hilt is natural wood with grooved grip and an oval alloy cross guard which is ‘AM’ (Air Ministry) stamped. There is also an indistinct roundel stamp. Both stamps can be seen in the images. The fact that the cross guard is light alloy rather than heavier steel or brass would indicate that this was a pilots knife. In his book page 133 Ron Flook references the use of wood handled FS daggers by WW2 Pilot’s with a contemporary image of a Pilot carrying a wood hilt FS dagger while being debriefed at an airfield in France shortly after D day June 1944. However Ron states that he has never seen an Air Ministry marked example making this a rare piece. The wood hilt has some fine old stable cracks near to the cross guard only visible on close inspection. The hilt and blade are secure with no movement. The pommel has the correct screw bolt. It has a clean 171mm steel dagger blade with medial ridge. The dagger has its original correct leather scabbard with belt loop and retaining strap with stud fastener. The riveted and stitched scabbard is in excellent condition, clean with all leather and stitching intact. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 18500
