SOLD...LAYAWAY...Original WW2 2nd Pattern B2 WD Fairbairn Sykes FS Commando Fighting Knife With ‘None Standard’ Period/Field Scabbard & Frog Configuration. Sn 12261 - 12261
2nd Pattern Fairbairn Sykes 'FS' Fighting Knives were introduced in 1941. This is excellent condition WW2 2nd pattern, B2, FS dagger (See page 89-93 of The Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife & Other Commando Knives By Flook). The hilt is blackened brass with knurled grip and an oval cross guard. The top of the cross guard is stamped with the correct 'B2' designation and a War Dept arrow. It has an excellent 172mm long double edged blackened blade with medial ridge. The scabbard is accompanied by its unconventional period scabbard & frog configuration. The scabbard made from folded pressed copper has a medial ridge on both sides of its body. The knife fits the scabbard perfectly and was obviously made for it during the war in a workshop or in the field to replace its lost original, or to provide better protection to the blade during combat. The scabbard retains much of its original black paint and has a single frog stud. The scabbard is fitted with its WW2 era British green webbing bayonet frog with integral belt loop. The eyelets of the bayonet frog have been contemporaneously adapted to fit the stud on the scabbard. The scabbard fits snugly into the frog (some examples of adapted scabbards and bayonet frogs for FS daggers are shown in Chapter 14 of Flook’s book). Price for this excellent B2, 2nd pattern FS Commando dagger with unusual scabbard and frog configuration worthy of further research includes UK delivery. Sn 12261

Original Georgian Napoleonic Wars Era British Naval Midshipman’s Fighting Dirk With Long Rapier Blade, Brass Lion’s Head Pommel & Brass Scabbard. ED 289 - ED 289
Naval forces began to use dirks in the mid to late 1700s. Historians differ on whether dirks originated with the Danish Navy or the Royal Navy but they were widely used by England’s sea service. During the period 1780 to 1820, the Officer/ Midshipmen strength of the Royal Navy varied from about 3,500 to 6,000. Despite the popular notion that only Midshipmen used dirks, early paintings show dirks worn by high-ranking Naval Officers as well as Midshipmen. Toward the end of the 18th Century, dirks began to be worn by Naval Officers and Midshipmen on dress occasions in lieu of swords. Many fighting dirks from the Napoleonic era are found with straight double edged rapier stabbing blades ideal for use in close quarter fighting. This original British Navy Midshipman’s fighting dirk has a slim 16 ¼” slim rapier blade which is undamaged and has just natural aged staining. The blade has no manufacturer marks. The dirk measures 21 ¼” overall and has a slim lacquered wood handle which has 3 old stable secure cracks. The handle is totally secure and not loose. The dirk has a copper and brass ferrule, short curved finger guard and large brass Lion’s head pommel. The dirk is complete with its original brass scabbard which has 2 brass hanging rings. On one side, the body of the scabbard near to the throat has a purpose made hole most likely for a belt hanger or frog stud which is absent. The scabbard has just a few minor dents consistent with age and service use. Price for this Napoleonic Wars era Midshipman’s fighting dirk with scabbard includes UK delivery. ED 289

C1860 Victorian Era North West Frontier pesh-kabz / Khyber Armour Piercing Indian / Afghan Knife With Polished Bone & Buffalo Horn Grips, Etched Blade & Scabbard. ED 268 - ED 268
The pesh-kabz or peshkabz is a type of Perso-Afghan knife designed to penetrate chain mail armour. The word is also spelled pesh-quabz or pish-ghabz and means "fore-grip" in the Persian language. The knife is typically used as a thrusting weapon, however, the wide ‘T’ section blade also possesses considerable slicing performance, and as such may also be used effectively with slashing or cutting strokes. During the British colonial rule in India, the British frequently referred to all Afghan blades of this pattern collectively as "Afghan knives" or "Khyber knives", after the Khyber Pass that marked the transition from British India to the nation of Afghanistan. In India, manufacture of the pesh-kabz was centered in the northern city of Bhera, now part of Pakistan. During the First and Second Anglo-Afghan wars, the pesh-kabz was frequently the weapon of choice for finishing off wounded British and colonial troops, as the Afghan tribesmen did not take prisoners except for use as hostages. This is a very good original example of the pesh-kabz made in the Victorian era C1860. It has a heavy 9" single edged T section blade (13” overall). The 1 ¾” wide blade with single razor sharp cutting edge narrows to a pin sharp armour piercing point. The blade has staining consistent with age but no rust and is etched on both sides with crude foliate images. One side has the naïve representation of a male figure and an elephant. It has a full brass tang, curved pronged pommel and finger guard decorated with hand tooled geometric designs. The scales are formed from pieces of polished bone and buffalo horn with hand punched decoration. The scales have wear consistent with age and use. The knife is complete with horn lined leather hide covered scabbard the leather of the scabbard which has a stitched seam is undamaged. Price for this great historic piece includes UK delivery.
