**MINT**Cased Commemorative WW2 Fairbairn Sykes 3rd Pattern FS Fighting Knife 'Commando 1940-45' By Wilkinson Sword With Etched Blade. Sn 19108. - 19108
The British Commandos were formed during the Second World War in June 1940, following a request from the British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, for a force that could carry out raids against German-occupied Europe. Initially drawn from within the British Army from soldiers who volunteered for the Special Service Brigade, the Commandos' ranks would eventually be filled by members of all branches of the United Kingdom's armed forces and a number of foreign volunteers from German-occupied countries. Reaching a wartime strength of over 30 individual units and four assault brigades, the Commandos served in all theatres of war from the Arctic Circle to Europe and from the Mediterranean and Middle East Theatre to South-East Asia. Their operations ranged from small groups of men landing from the sea or by parachute to a brigade of assault troops spearheading the Allied invasions of Europe and Asia. All Commandos were issued with the iconic FS Fighting knife. This superb 3rd pattern FS Commando dagger was produced to Commemorate the British Army Commandos WW2 Service 1940-1945.

*Handmade* ‘PUMA White Hunter’ 6377 Hunting Knife and Original Leather Scabbard. 21167. - 21167
This iconic knife was the result of a collaborative effort by PUMA and the East Africa Professional Hunter’s Association.

Otto von Frankenburg, the husband of Renate Lauterjung, a decendant of Franz Lauterjung was in charge at PUMA .It was von Frankenburg’s influence in the company that transitioned the company into a comprehensive hunting knife maker. He enlisted the help of a friend, Walter Frevert, who was the Head of Forestry in Germany. Both men were active hunters. Designed by Puma and field tested in Africa, the locals gave it the name White Hunter, named after the European and North American hunters who came often to Africa on Safari. Many of these knives were often presented as gifts to the guides and trackers by the hunters at the end of the hunt. The double edged knife is made from one piece of steel with 2 serrated edges. The polished blade is 15 ¼ cm in length and is lovely condition with only minor signs of use. The hardwood grips are held with 3 brass studs with a lanyard hole and are unmarked.
