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. The polished hand-ground blade is superb and full length at almost 6¾, the tip does appear ‘blunted’ a little but this is only minor and may be polished out. The Wilkinson etchings is very crisp and clear. The hilt is also in excellent condition and retains close to 100% original finish. 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.
