This possibly unique and incredibly important Wilkinson First Pattern is special for two reasons; firstly with its exaggerated crossguard, ‘s’ ground ricasso shoulder etc is has the hallmarks of a first production knife (December 1940), only a handful of these are know which I wrote an article (link)  about in 2014.  Also this knife a has blank ricasso, examples of which are very rare but this is the first example noted on an first production knife, possibly unique?  Overall condition is very fine.  Blade length of 6⅞” with very light rounding to the tip, otherwise no issues.  The bottom of the scabbard is original but the frog has been replaced by a well made leather frog.  A ‘very’ special and important early First Pattern.
