    1st PATTERN HILT, Original WW2, 2nd Pattern, Wilkinson British Officer's, Nickel Plated, Fairbairn Sykes FS Fighting Knife With ‘56’ WD Inspection Mark & Scabbard. Sn 17863 - 17863

    2nd Pattern 'FS' Fighting Knives were introduced in 1941. This is a rare example of the WW2, 2nd Pattern, Officer's fighting knife with 1st Pattern knurled nickel plated hilt and 2nd pattern oval cross guard which has WD stamp ‘56’. See page 95 of ‘the Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife & Other Commando Knives By Flook where he describes the ‘56’ mark as being one of 2 WD marks found on nickel finish examples (the other being ‘60’) & illustrates a ‘56’ marked 1st pattern handle example of the Officer’s Nickel finish 2nd Pattern and describes how similarities in ‘56’ marked knives and other knives without Wilkinson logos has led many collectors to conclude that they are in fact a Wilkinson product). It has a clean 171mm double edged dagger blade with medial ridge. The dagger is complete with original scabbard with nickel plated chape. As is common the scabbard’s elasticated retaining strap is absent. The centre top of the belt loop has a period cut eyelet to allow attachment to uniform. All leather and stitching are intact. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 17863
