A blackened brass hilted officer quality Fairbairn-Sykes Commando dagger. The blued blade is etched with the Wilkinson logo that was present on the original world war two examples. BY APPOINTMENT TO HER MAJESTY QUEEN ELIZABETH 11 SWORD CUTLERS WILKINSON SWORD MADE IN ENGLAND. The leather scabbard is more substantial than that found normally on this type of weapon. I believe this dagger to be an officer private purchase because the quality of this weapon overall is far too superior to the daggers normally found by collectors.
Period style: 1940’s Dimension: app 12 inches Item location: In the Centre
