Does anyone know how late these were made? I have the book by Graham Priest, and he says that the date stamps should be either 41 or 42, mine is dated 43, and the blade is all painted, it's not in the white like the others I've seen. I don't have the Skennerton book yet, but after I've recovered from the sticker shock, I think I'll be getting one. Here's some pictures of mine, sorry I'm still learning the settings of my camera.
this is the scabbard that came with it
and the rest for display
