    I was lucky enough to find myself one of these at the car boot sale the other week. I thought it was Postwar originally as I was unaware of any stainless knives from early on in the war. It was only when I opened it when I got home and saw the date I realised.
    The blade has seen some use but everything is nice and tight.

    As luck would have it I picked up this one this morning
    Nice to have one without the Marlin-spike.

    It was seized up and in the £1 tray. It is also dated 1940 but is corroded over a very light stamping and therefore hard to see. On the whole it is in very good condition and not suffered too much from the seizing.

    I have now been lucky enough to find this Sheffield Steel Products 1944 dated pocket knife.
    Overall its in good condition but the tin/bottle opener is a little loose.

    I can't say much more about it as Warspite has said it all here....... https://hatchfive.wordpress.com/2015...rn-jack-knife/
