    A WW2 private purchase F.S. style fighting knife/dagger and scabbard by Taylor Eye Witness.

The pommel and cross guard are brass. It has a compressed leather ring grip which is in excellent condition. The brass cross guard is oval. The sturdy FS style blade with medial ridge measures 6 ¾” and it is 11 ¼” overall. The dagger blade has some light staining consistent with age. The blade is etched on one side "Taylor Witness Sheffield England" with eye trademark. The scabbard is dark brown leather and is stitched and riveted with 7 rivets. The scabbard has an integral belt loop with retaining strap that has a press stud fastener. The scabbard is impressed ‘Made in Sheffield Eng.’ The rear of the scabbard has contemporary ink hand writing ‘167701 Po/Sqdr Leader Carver No.2 Sqdn Spitfire’ most likely the name and service number of the RAF Spitfire Pilot who privately purchased this knife. The price for this knife and scabbard worthy of research re the RAF Squadron leader includes UK delivery. Sn 14512
