MINT, Cased Wilkinson Sword Commemorative Fairbairn Sykes 1st Pattern, 1st Type, FS Commando Dagger With Correct 1st Type 3" Cross Guard & Etched Panels Blade. Sn 13700 - 13700
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 1st pattern FS Commando dagger with 1st type 3" cross guard was most likely produced in the 1990’s by Wilkinson Sword to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the FS Fighting Knife. The knife is in superb near mint condition. The ricasso is etched on one side with panel ‘Wilkinson Sword London’ together with crossed swords legend. The reverse has ‘The F-S Fighting Knife’ at the ricasso. 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. Price for this excellent commemorative piece includes UK delivery. Sn 13700
