Description: PRICE REDUCED NOW THROUGH DECEMBER 25th, 2012!! This is a rare and very collectable WWII era British Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife, 3rd Pattern, issued to commandos and the OSS (secret service). Wilkinson Sword started the production of the 3rd Pattern on the 20th of October 1943. There are not many variations of the third pattern, except "F-S" and "Wilkinson" logos on some, and none on others. The pommel nuts vary and the number on top of the hilt will vary from 1 to 4. This knife has black grips with the number 1, which indicates the grips were made by the Perry Barr Metal Co of Birmingham. The grips are thought to be the design of the Joseph Rodgers firm, of Sheffield. It has 27 concentric rings, and was cast in alloy metal. In September 1942, the so-called ring grip pattern was introduced and quickly became standard. The double-edged stiletto type blade was machine forged and razor sharp. This knife is still in excellent condition and VERY sharp! Mr. W. Fairbairn insisted upon the importance to have the knife easily accessible but hidden for best effect and surprise. The sheath is a very important part of the Commando knife. It was stipulated that it should have some means of being secured to the clothes. For this reason two small leather tabs were placed each side of the sheath-body, which could be stitched to the clothing or equipment. The grip of the 3rd Pattern F-S knife was held with a strip of elastic band which was sewn to each side of the sheath. The end of the sheath was tipped off with a simple rounded chape in bronzed brass. This sheath shows some wear, but is still in very good condition. If you are a collector, this is a MUST HAVE for you! More photos available via email. Payment: US Post Office money order ONLY. FREE PRIORITY INSURED SHIPPING!!
