Post WW2 Service Carried Condition British Wilkinson Sword ‘Best Commando On Course Prize’ Nickel Plated 3rd Pattern Fairbairn Sykes FS Fighting Knife With Etched Panel & Scabbard. Sn 18255 - 18255

An original, 3rd Pattern Fairbairn Sykes fighting knife with etched Wilkinson Sword panel. These post WW2 quality knives were reputedly presented to the ‘best commando on course’ after completion of their arduous training and are highly prized fully functional fighting knives. The 3rd pattern knife was introduced in 1942 (see page 61 & 62 of British & Commonwealth Military Knives By Flook) and continued to be issued post war. This Commando prize knife obviously carried in service after being awarded. It has an undamaged ribbed and nickel plated brass handle and oval nickel plated cross guard. It has a 166mm dagger blade with medial ridge. The blade has an etched panel on one side ‘Wilkinson Sword Ltd Made In England’ within foliate panel & crossed swords legend. The etching is rubbed consistent with service use. It is complete with its leather scabbard with external nickel plated chape and single belt loop. It retains its 4 leather sewn on leather tabs and elasticated retaining strap. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 18255
