A simply stunning and completely unused example of the Third Pattern F-S Fighting Knife manufactured by Wilkinson Sword for the India Stores contract in December 1943.  The official order for 2,500 knives specifically requested that no makers mark be added to the knives but only the official ‘I’ denoting India Store and the ‘⩚’ (broad-arrow or crows-foot) indicating Government ownership.  These knives are identical in every respect to the etched examples by Wilkinson and were produced to the same exacting standards.  This knife along with its original Wilkinson scabbard is in beautiful pristine condition.
