SOLD SOLD WILKINSON COMMEMORATIVE FS DAGGERS, Limited Edition Number 12 Of 50 Cased Fairbairn Sykes 1st Pattern, 1st Type, FS Commando Dagger With 3" Cross Guard & Etched Blade 1946-1996, Golden Jubilee Special Forces Club With Certificate. - 13685
WW2 1st pattern FS Commando fighting knives were initially produced in 1940 with large 3" cross guards but the cross guard size on 1st pattern's was soon reduced to 2" due the larger cross guards snagging on clothing. Many collectors doubted the existence of these 1st type 1st pattern knives as examples were rarely if ever seen, however, Ron Flook in his book The Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife & Other Commando Knives describes and illustrates correspondence produced by Wilkinson Sword dated 1941 which contains a request from the War Office to produce knives with 2" cross guards rather than 3" (see page 68 of Flook's book plate 5.8.). This superb full size (12” overall) 1st pattern FS Commando dagger with 1st type 3" cross guard was produced in 1996 by Wilkinson Sword to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the ‘The Special Forces Club’. These are arguably the rarest of all Wilkinson commemorative FS daggers. They were only sold to members / ex members of elite British Special Forces Units and were made in a very limited edition run of 50 blades. The knife is in superb near mint condition. It has a beautiful blade etched on one side with '1946-1996 The Special Forces Club Golden Jubilee’ together with 'The spirit of resistance' emblem. The reverse has the WW2 type etched Wilkinson Sword London with crossed swords legend & ‘The F-S Fighting Knife’ panels. The back of the blade is numbered ‘12’ (of 50). The 1st Pattern nickel plated handle and cross guard retain their original finish. The dagger is contained in its original wooden box with hinged lid covered in green leatherette material. The case has clasp fasteners. The inside of the case is lined in green felt & white silk & is contoured to snugly fit the dagger. The silk is emblazoned with the Wilkinson Sword name & Crossed Swords legend together with Queen Elizabeth II Royal Appointments all in Gold. The piece is accompanied by its original certificate of authenticity identifying the blade as number 12 of 50 and outlining the history of the FS fighting knife. Price for this excellent commemorative piece includes UK delivery. Sn 13685
