An excellent example of this rare and much sought after classic.  Although the scabbard is an early replacement (second pattern Type I) it is contemporary with the knife (1941).  The knife is in ‘Fine’ original condition, very near 100% original plating and polish remain.  A really super full length blade at 6⅞” with no damage, nick, dings or bends, nice and straight with a ‘perfect’ tip, just showing ‘very’ light sharpening marks.  Both etchings are clear and readable, just a little faded.  Lovely ‘S’ shaped cross-guard retaining 100% of its original plating & polish.  Knurled grip is in superb undamaged condition and  the pommel nut is totally original and untouched.  Overall a really excellent ‘clean’ example.
