These numbered knives are somewhat of a mystery, although it seems that the 30946 is perhaps a stores code of some sort and the other number (always under 500) is an individual serial number for the knife.  This example is number 285.  From my research I have located a total of only 26 examples that have survived.  Please check out my comments and research in the First Pattern Variations & Production Anomalies section.  The knife and scabbard are in excellent condition.  The blade is full length at just under 7” and has a long slender taper.  The back of the frog has written in ink ‘A H Pechell’ which I assume is the original owner and may provide an interesting opportunity for research.
