In mint un-issued condition we have an exceptional example of an early war, 1942 production ⇑broad arrow B2 marked Wilkinson Made British Military Second Pattern F-S Fighting Knife. The 63/4th inch blade is flawless with a perfect point and the original factory sharpening. The blueing on the blade and handle is nearly completely intact, if this was a pistol we would sat 99% mint crisp un-issued condition. Both the scabbard and the knife are export (England) marked as these knifes are. This is an impeccable example of an early war knife exactly was would have been used during commando raids and in clandestine operations early in the war. While you do see 3rd pattern F-S knives in nice condition, the early 1st and 2nd pattern knives just do not turn up in this crisp. This is a rare piece in impossible to upgrade condition.
