A splendid and honest example of a classic Wilkinson First Pattern F-S Fighting Knife complete with original and correct scabbard.  This is one of those knives I really love - a real Commando knife, showing clear signs of having been used, carried but well cared for.  Full length blade just shy of 6⅞” with only gentle signs of sharpening/cleaning.  Both etching are a little faded but still clear.  The hilt is excellent and retains all of its plating.  Pommel nut is totally correct and untouched.  The original scabbard is in good order, having had a small supporting piece of leather attached to the throat of the sheath.  One side of the snap-faster is missing along with the wings.  This is a splendid, solid and original example in wonderful carried condition, just a pity we don’t know who by!
