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
