~ Second Pattern Unmarked Possibly Post War Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife ~
Here we have a nice second pattern Fairbarirn Sykes Fighting knife, this Fairbairn is in excellent condition and is a lovely example of a early war knife with the blackened and bronzed colouring, the thick straight guard and this one being one of the odder unmarked ones.
The knife has a daggers double edged blade and a very heavy handle shaped, some say, like an old cola bottle and a ribbed grip to keep in the hand. The grip is also long so it can be held either in a hammer grip, ice pick grip or a fencers (or handshake) grip, making for a very versatile fighting blade and was designed to be a fighting knife and nothing else unlike many blades that were meant to be workhorses, tools and survival knives.
Overall this is a lovely near mint example with the crowning glory, a scabbard that appears untouched yet original
