Excessively Rare Wilkinson ‘Three Banner’ Tom Beasley F-S Fighting Knife

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Wilkinson ‘Three Banner’ Tom Beasley F-S Fighting Knife


Price: $


Ref: 6147


The ‘three’ banner Tom Beasley F-S knife is excessively rare due to the deterioration (later resulting in the Cold War) relationship between Russia and the Allied nations.  The  last banner indicating ‘Stalingrad Sword Fame’ was soon dropped and all subsequent Beasley knives were of the two banner type.  This example is in very fine uncleaned condition.  The full length 6½” blade has the full compliment of etchings on both side.  The blade shows slight sharpening marks overall and the etchings have softened slightly but remain strong and readable.  The ivorine grip is surprisingly intact with no cracks - a common issue with this material.  The knives comes with it’s original fancy sheath.  All fittings on the knife and sheath retain their original gilt finish, remaining uncleaned and dull with age  This F-S is one of the rarities of Wilkinson F-S production with only a few examples known.
