A great example of a good honest ‘been there done that’ First Pattern F-S.  This is one of those knives that always inspires me to think “if only it could talk”, I wonder what Commando raids it has been on?  Some patches of old corrosion to the blade, a little plating lost here and there, the blade a little shorter than normal and the original scabbard is missing the frog.  But aside from all these signs of use the knife is still solid and very serviceable having been well cared for, this knife could be carried today and still provide great service.  A grand surviver of the classic of all fighting knives.  We all like pristine example but I can’t help but love these old soldiers.
