    Ron is Ron Flook.

    Full length would imply this one has been cut down.

    These were issued to the auxillary army to use in a Guerrilla war if the Germans invaded
    The whole point was they were a commercial type so the Germans would not be suspicious if they found a man with one on him
    The blade had been sharpened and has lost some length
    But if it had been full length like the one I sold last month it would have sold for $200

    I will keep an eye out for it Ade, have you seen pictures of this type of knife in there, the seller tells me he has only seen 3 in 35 years however several hundred F.S, anyway i have taken the plunge for the sake of 11, just about 3 pints of beer.

    Checked the book and it is mentioned on page 229. The pic of it, plate 549, is very dark and you cannot even see it has a horn grip.

    Cheers, Ade.

    these people would have had such knives.
