This classic Wilkinson First Pattern F-S is in excellent overall condition with a near flawless blade and original (although modified) scabbard.  The blade is full length at 6⅞” with a lovely narrow tapered grind, no nicks, bends or chips, totally straight with an intact original point and very near 100% original polish to the blade.  The scabbard shows signs of field use, the wings have been carefully removed and the chape has a few minor dings.  The frog has the often seen ‘button-hole’ slit and the belt slits have been elongated and sewn back up!  This was likely done to fit onto the 37 Pattern webbing belt.  The back of the frog also has a period addition of some leather backing carefully sewn in place.
