This is one of those great classic and totally honest First Patterns that is always a pleasure to see.  This example is showing its age a little but wear’s it very well indeed.  As you can see the very tip of the blade is missing, although quite a common area to see damage on many First Pattern knives, it really does not detract too much from this knife.  Complete with its original and totally correct scabbard this knife would be a fine addition to any collection.  Both etching panels are easy to read despite the minor corrosion and the whole knife has a feel of one that has not been too heavily ‘cleaned’ over the years, as stated this is an excellent example of a good ‘honest’ and totally correct First Pattern.
