    Nice Adrian!
    Do either of the nickel Commandos have an etch on the blade?

    Hi Ralph, the first pattern has the usual "FS" and "Wilkinson Sword" etched panels on the ricasso.

    The first pattern knife is one of my favourite items in my collection. I featured it in more detail here:

    The 2nd pattern is completely plain.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Adrian, I really like that one in the middle of the lot. Is it supposed to be a homemade push-dagger?

    Thanks for the photos Adrian! If I see corectly, one has the flat ricasso and the other is curved. Here are a few photos of mine. It has a banner on the blade with a name on it. Would you know of any way to find out who it belonged to?

    It is. It came from Canada and I believe it dates to WW1.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ralph, the echted panel was an option a private purchase buyer could choose. Sadly no way of tracing him. I have seen them carried by US servicemen as well as Brit/Commonwealth troops.

    Only first pattern knives had the flat ricasso. The blades were hand made and expensive, which was one of the reasons the 2nd pattern with a simpler machine made blade came inot being.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Adrian.
    Sorry, I meant to say guard. I realise the earlier ones had the hand made blades with the flat ricasso. I have one, but it is not of the nickel finish.

    Ade, Ralph,
    Great commando blades. My very first real collectable knife was a FS 3rd pattern.
    I think I bought it when I was maybe 14 years old. (wow--40 years ago)

    Here is my 1918 trench knife.
