The war-time Wilkinson (etched) Third Pattern is one of the most difficult F-S knives to find ‘in any condition’. Even rarer is one that displays a personal etching, as only a handful of examples are known to exist. This knife has clearly seen some use but certainly not abuse, with a full length blade in excellent condition it is a solid knife. The blade show a ‘full’ length of over 6¾”  and is thick, straight with no damage and a perfect point. All the etchings are readable but faded.  The personal etching banner reads ‘William Purvis’, this was difficult to photograph but is clearly readable. The grip cast mould number is ‘3’.
