A rare example of the Admiralty Order FR693 Marked Late War Third Pattern FS Knife, complete with its matching FR 271 scabbard. The Admiralty Order came out in 1964 and Wilkinson made 100 Knives which were stamped on the underside of the guard, these were boxed and sent off. No further Knives were made as the rest of the Order was simply filled with WW2 Knives that were in WD stores, these,like this mint example were stamped on the pommel area and stored away. The scabbards were stamped to the rear of the leather patch securing the elastic. As I say this knife is a Late War example with a machine finished blade and a pommel number 4. Blade is an immaculate 6 7/8” Long. All nice and tight. Scabbard is the correct Pattern for this knife.

British Clements Knuckleduster Knife This knife has an aluminium hilt,the blade is secured by three rivets secured into a groove on the hilt by three rivets. Housed in nicely fashioned theatre made leather scabbard. Several books have these pieces dating from WW1 but I think this may be later and just Pre WW2. It is obvious to me that the iconic BC41 was modelled on this piece.
British Smatchet A very nice early British Smatchet in its original leather covered wood scabbard. The really rare thing about this piece is the original rubberised cover on the grip, although it is torn it is there and that is very hard to find. The blade shows use on the cutting edge, which again is nice to see, its a combat used piece and not a stores lay away as often seen. A superb example of an iconic weapon as designe by W.E. Fairbairn.

Dahlgren Knife Bayonet The Dahlgren knife bayonet... (named after Captain John A. Dahlgren, U.S. Navy)... one of two bayonets associated with the Whitney Model 1861 Percussion Navy ("Plymouth") .69 caliber Rifle. The Whitney "Plymouth" rifle, named after the U.S.S. PLYMOUTH, a naval ordnance testing ship which had been built under Dahlgren's supervision, has the distinction of being the only U.S. contract arm to be originally rifled in .69 caliber. The first Knife Bladed bayonet is considered to be the Model 1861 for the Plymouth / Whitneyville rifle. It is perhaps better known by its nickname the Dahlgren Bowie Bayonet, named for it inventor Admiral John A. Dahlgren. Many articles have been written about the Dahlgren bayonet but what is most intriguing are the actual letters from the Admiral himself regarding its design and use. As we know the basic use of a bayonet is mounted to the end of a rifle or musket. To Dahlgren's thinking this is not the proper use of his newly invented arm. It should be known that Admiral Dahlgren was in command of several Navy ships and knew first hand what close quarters fighting was about. With this in mind perhaps we can relate to the admirals thought when he wrote that the bayonet was best used in the hand not mounted on the end of the rifle it was designed for. It is also interesting to note that the 1861 rifle already had a sword bayonet designed for it at the time of Dahlgren's invention of the new bayonet. In Dahlgren's own words he called it the "most useless thing in the world except at the end of a musket." Perhaps this explains why most Dahlgren bayonets do NOT fit the Model 1861 rifle. They were meant to but they were also designed to be used as a close quarters fighting weapon in a sailors or marines hand. The Admiral invented a bayonet because a knife would not be sanctioned by the Ordnance Board. But being the clever fellow he was the bayonet did not really have to fit the rifle either.

Early 33 SA Mans Dagger By Ernst Romer A very nice 33 Pattern SA dagger by the scarce if not rare maker Ernst Romer, one of the nicest maker marks in my opinion. Gau Marked Ns. Superb guard fit, in fact I’d say perfect, lovely untouched patina on this one and never been apart. Blade shows scabbard runner marks and is excellent for its age. Nice deep motto and lovely crisp maker mark. Scabbard is the adonised version with a bit of lifting near the chape but nothing too bad. The rear shows perfect rubbing patina where it has rested and rubbed the trousers of its keeper. A good early hanger completes the set
Etched Second Pattern Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife Etched Second Pattern Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife, full size blade. This is the brass handle bright blade variant. The wide blade and bulbous pommel nut on this knife suggest to me that it is an early manufacture knife and an issue one to an Officer. When issue of these knives stopped, it was possible to purchase one from the Pall Mall shop in London but the blades were narrower and pommel nuts different. The scabbard is the correct one for this knife and the flexibility of the belt loop tells me it has been carried on a belt. Please look at the photos carefully as they are part of the description.
Finnish Valmet Bayonet Scarce Finnish valmet bayonet made by Fiskars. These bayonets are factory sharpened and are extremely sharp.

Kukri Kukri that I believe dates around 1920 but I’m fully open to advice on that.

No 5 Bayonet No5 bayonet for the Jungle Carbine,this also fits the Sterling SMG. Made by Wilkinson and double stamped with Wilkinson and their WD code S294 which indicates to me a 1945 produced bayonet,so a scarce chance to get a wartime No5. The fact this has rounded wood grip scales also evidences it as being a 1945 dated bayonet has survived being updated and grips replaced with angular ones.
No7 Bayonet No7 bayonet for the Sten Gun and the Lee Enfield No4 rifle. This is the Mk1 land model. The bayonet is in mint condition and has an inspector mark that I believe is Poole Factory but no maker mark.
P1888 Lee Metford bayonet A very nice example of a P 1888 Lee Metford bayonet Mk1 type 2 with multiple reissue dates. Some bruising and very old loss of wood to one grip scale. What makes this a very interesting bayonet is the addition to the ricasso of the “Sold Out Of Service” asterisk and the “reject From Service” mirrored R, very unusual to see these markings on the ricasso,they are usually on the pommel.blade rates as near mint. 2MX on scabbard throat (2nd Battalion Middlesex regiment) not a matching number. Scabbard rates as excellent as well. A desirable bayonet for the markings alone.

Rare OSS (USAAF) Machette Rare USAAF survival machete made by Cruver Mfg. Co. and Collins Co. Cruver made the handles, while Collins the blades. These were reputed to have been used by the OSS,now it just depends which book you read as to what you may believe. What is fact is that these are extremely rare pieces and to find one with its original scabbard is even rarer. This example has lost its bluing to the blade but apart from that it is in great shape. No cracks to the handle and the piece is tight. Scabbard is in used condition but has no holes. All in all a rare machete and in great condition
Robbins Of Dudley Trench Knife Robbins of Dudley are as the name suggests from the Worcestershire area and were a metalwork company. They ceased trading in 1928.

Complete with its leather sheath that is in excellent condition. This is an excellent example of its kind.

Servicing Commando Knife Servicing Commando Knife In a FS sheath. A genuine Servicing Commando Knife housed in a a FS knife sheath,a very unusual pairing but from the fit and the aged crease at the top of the sheath I think a very genuine paring. The very interesting thing about this knife is the lettering inscribed in the bone pommel. The initials A R are more than likely the Servicing Commando's initials. Also carved is CATFOSS, which was a RAF training air base during WW2 in East Yorkshire near to Hornsea. The markings have worn off the knife but it is undoubtedly as described. A very unique knife
Shakespear Knife With Sambar Handle The Wilkinson-Shakespear knife was designed by Henry Shakespear, a British Cavalry Officer who served in India circa 1834, he was also a renowned Big Game Hunter. He designed the knife and did so in the guise of a double edged knife of 5 varying lengths with a concave hilt. The scabbard was wood and leather covered. Shakespear would have visited the Wilkinson shop in Pall Mall, London at some stage and presented his design for approval. Obviously it was accepted and the knife went into production. The blade is generally seen with the Wilkinson-Shakespear etch and the Pall Mall etch to the reverse. This knife is without doubt a Wilkinson-Shakespear knife and is a private purchase by, I would say a Scottish Officer, who has had requested that only his name is etched onto the blade A. Campbell and the Pall Mall address on the reverse. The hilt on this is the most beautiful piece of Sambar Stag, the deer is found on the Asian Continent and the horn is very desirable in the making of knife handles. I am not convinced that Wilkinson added this handle at point of production but that it may have been added by Campbell at some stage. The handle sits perfectly in the right hand. The guard and pommel cap are silver as far as I ascertain. This is an eceptionally rare knife, it has been personalised into a unique piece. The scabbard I believe to be original with the leather cover lost to time and the frog added. A very rare chance to own a unique knife. If you are interested in this knife please contact me regarding shipping as it will need to be fully insured so I have left the price off the listing.

Taiwanese M1 Bayonet Taiwanese M1 Bayonet In stunning condition. Throats of scabbard has been painted but that's par for the course with these.
Theatre Adapted Fighting Knife This knife started out having a standard wood handle and has been theatre adapted into a guarded fighting knife and extremely well done too. It is a Bowie style blade and made by the firm of A. Saldana of Mexico. The sheath bears the Mexican eagle stamp. My thoughts are that it was adapted by an American soldier and carried during WW2. Saldana knives of any sort are hard to find, this one, is a one off.

Third Pattern FS Fighting Knife With Rare FS Hunting Scabbard Third Pattern FS Fighting Knife With Rare FS Hunting Scabbard. Mould number4 on this transitional Third Pattern,it's got an early third guard and pommel nut but a machine finished blade. It has been shortened to fit the scabbard and I believe period done to demonstrate the Hunting Scabbard. The scabbards were not adopted therefore are a rare item themselves. The knife is near mint,having as I say been shortened period,factory done to fit in the scabbard. First knife I've ever seen in a scabbard,having seen two previous Hunting Scabbards 30 years ago.

Published Circa 1974-76,these were and I believe still are at the forefront of any bayonet collectors library.
