A seldom seen c1954 Wilkinson Third Pattern F-S in really splendid condition. Wilkinson continued to make F-S knives post-war to fill small military contracts both at home an abroad but as these contracts were often small (in comparison to war-time production) it is very scarce to encounter such examples today. This scarce knife comes complete with its very rare original and totally correct early post-war Wilkinson scabbard. Also of interest is that the ringed grip has a mould number (4) and is of war-time production, this is not unusual (although rare) as Wilkinson continued to use up parts for many years after wars end. Due to shrinkage the scabbard is a very tight fit and the knife does not go fully home.
