A superb and excessively rare example of a fully etched Wilkinson Third Pattern F-S, perhaps one of the rarest of all standard Wilkinson F-S knives.  This example is very fine indeed showing very little use and complete with original and correct scabbard.  The full length polished blade is almost 6⅜” and with a perfect tip, showing very light sharpening marks and with strong clear etching panels.  The grip retains almost all of the original finish, having the mould number ‘1’ and with a pommel nut showing correct vice marks and totally original and untouched.  A correct scabbard accompanies this super knife, no wings but still retaining the original elastic retaining strap (stretched).
