A really splendid example of an original Wilkinson First Pattern F-S.  Overall in fine condition, this example has a beautiful straight tapered blade of 6⅝”.  There is little sign of use or sharpening to the full length blade, just some age stains with both etching panels clear and strong.  The really interesting detail about this knife is that the cross-guard has an exaggerated ‘S’ curve, a detail that is very rarely seen.  It is my personal belief that this is indicative of a very early knife but please read my further comment in the First Pattern-Production Anomalies.  This rare knife is complete with its original and correct scabbard which does show use and field modifications.
