    1st Type WW2 Era British Special Operations Executive (SOE ) 'Escape Tool' Folding Pocket Knife / Tool By Joseph Rodgers & Sons Sheffield. Sn 17945 - 17945

    Described as very desirable and much sought after on page 48 of British & Commonwealth Military Knives By Flook and illustrated on the same page at plate 98, these 1st type rare escape knives were issued to members of the British SOE during WW2. This is an excellent original example. The knife of all steel construction features an integral wire cutter the arm of which is held to the body of the knife by a hinged 'hoop bar'. It measures 6 ¼” overall when closed and has 2 single edged folding blades. One measures 3" and is crisply marked by the manufacturer 'Joseph Rodgers & Sons Cutlers To His Majesty Sheffield England' together with Maltese cross & star trademark. The markings are illustrated in image 2. Later examples of this rare knife had the maker's details omitted for covert use. The second blade measures 2" and has a thumb lug spur to assist one handed opening. The knife also has three saw edge blades and a screwdriver head integral to the frame. The knife is fitted with a steel shackle and has even patina throughout consistent with age and service use. The price for this rare SOE knife includes UK delivery. Sn 17945
