An exceedingly rare etched Wilkinson Third Pattern F-S Fighting Knife complete with original and correct scabbard.  This example shows gentle overall use but is a hansom and rare knife.  The full length very thick hand-ground 6½” blade shows some sharpening marks consummate with normal use and wear.  Both etchings are a little faded but still very clear and readable, with the Wilkinson etchings being the less encountered long type.  The case grip mould number is ‘1’.  The pommel nut is totally original and untouched.  Overall an increasingly scarce and desirable example of an original and correct mid-war Wilkinson Third Pattern with a full compliment of etchings.
