    RARE 'Death's Head' Middle East Commando Knife & Scabbard. Sn 13628 - 13628

    The manufacture of the 'Death's Head' India Pattern Commando knives were influenced by members of the WW2 Middle East Commando who went to India and then China to form 'Mission 204'. An example of this knife is shown on page 208 plate 503 of Flook's book British & Commonwealth Military Knives. This is an excellent original example of the rare Middle East Commando knife. It has the correct 'deaths' head' cast brass grip with finger rings & 'cog wheel' type protrusions on the knuckle grip. Its 6" steel single edged Bowie type blade is undamaged. The knife measures 11 ¾” overall. As is common with these knives it does not have any manufacturers marks (see pages 32-35 of British & Commonwealth Military Knives by Flook). It is complete with its correct original heavy duty leather scabbard with rear belt loop & retaining strap which fastens to a brass stud on the body of the scabbard. The front of the scabbard has contemporary hand carved cross hatch etching below initials DB most likely applied in the field by the Commando who owned this dagger. Price for this piece of British Commando history includes UK delivery. Sn 13628
