A splendid and completely original example of the classic Wilkinson First Pattern F-S Fighting Knife.  This example has clearly been carried and used and shows signs of general sharpening along the length of the blade.  The blade being full length at nearly 6⅞” and is superb having a very narrow taper and lovely original tip to the point.  Both etchings are clear and strong.  Original untouched pommel nut.  Original and correct scabbard, one wing remaining and no staple in the chap.  Retaining original snap-fastener and showing the common field modification of a button hole on the frog.  A lovely honest example in every respect.
