A superb Wilkinson Third Pattern F-S Fighting Knife with polished blade. This example is slightly unusual in that it only has the Wilkinson Sword Co Ltd etching. I have seen this on rare occasions on some Wilkinson knives and it is likely just an oversight by the etcher or reflects a shortage of etchings on the day of production. Whatever the reason an interesting anomaly. No mould number is present on the pommel, I have occasionally encountered this on Wilkinson knives and may be indicative of immediate postwar production.  Pommel nut is totally original and untouched. This beautiful knife comes with a correct pattern scabbard, but due to it being marked England is most likely a replacement, although a correct one.
