This is a clean example of a rarely seen Wilkinson Third Pattern with the broad arrow and B2 inspection mark. The mould number is ‘2’. The crossguard does not have an import stamp. The ‘⩚B2’ marking is one of the cleanest stampings that I have seen in a while, as many are miss-stamped. The nice and thick hand-ground blade is in great shape, very near full length and just shy of 6¾”, with light sharpening and wear and still retaining a very high percentage of blueing. The scabbard has lost its frog but the sheath part remaining is correct for this pattern of knife and in very good order.
