Rare & Superb Blank Ricasso Wilkinson First Pattern F-S Fighting Knife


Price: $


Ref: 6092


Only a very few of these so ‘clandestine’ or blank ricasso First Patterns are known.  As no records of them are known, there is speculation as to the reason for exclusion of any etching panels or other marks.  This has lead to the feeling that these were for issue and use by the SOE (Special Operations Executive) Britain’s WWII clandestine unit.  Whatever their true history such knives are exceptionally scarce and as such add a very interesting aspect to any First Pattern collection.  This example is in superb condition.  The blade appears full length at 6⅝”.  Overall the knife shows only gentle use and wear.  The scabbard has a dark finish and interestingly has an unmarked snap-faster (again possible SOE association?) which appears to be an original.  The pommel nut to completely correct, original and untouched.
