A fine example of an original and untouched Wilkinson First Pattern F-S Fighting knife.  The knife appears to have had no use what so ever.  The blade being totally original with no signs of sharpening and/or use and is in ‘perfect’ condition.  Examples like this one that appear unused are extremely rare indeed.  Along with its original scabbard it is a rare find.  No wings are present on the scabbard and appear to have never been fitted, this is normal as some scabbards were supplied this way.  Note the blade on this example is especially thick, a sure sign of a hand-ground blade made by a craftsman.  Both blade etchings are as crisp as one cold hope to find.  Really splendid examples such as this should rightly be treasured.
