Rare and 100% genuine WW2 British Commandos famous Fairbairn-Sykes fighting knife, FS dagger, with original leather scabbard. Pattern WW2 production knife, grip casting mold #1, as marked on the pommel with embossed number 1. There is another, rarely seen marking, on the grip close to the crosspiece - a British broad arrow and (what looks to me) number 8. The crosspiece is marked ENGLAND. The knife comes with the original leather scabbard and both are in a good condition.The blade has been re-tipped but not over sharpened and has a lot of bluing on it. In some photos I have captured some pages from the fantastic book The Fairnbarn-Sykes Fighting Knife by Wolfgang Peter-Michel, which I highly recommend as a great reference on FS knives. My items are not new (unless noted) and usually are very old. There are dents, dings, chips, rust and other imperfections present.
