    Hi Al, From my understanding the way to date the later pattern sheaths is by the way the belt loop section is attached to the main body. If its secured with rivets of a material other than brass it is post war, brass rivets or staples are wartime. I am not certain of this, though.

    This site seems to be a good resource on the subject:

    I have a (probably) postwar 3rd pattern FS knife and scabbard.
    Good condition, never been used.
    No markings except "1" on handle just below pommel.
    Metal tipped leather sheath, missing top strap.
    No idea of value but I have no desire to keep edged weapons now, I am concentrating on air weapons. So it's for sale

    There is some other very small text under the Rodgers mark which I cannot make out.? I don't have any pics of the markings on file, so I will do some once I get chance in daylight.
    Hello Ade, you probably know this by now since it's an old post but if not then the wording under the William Rodgers name is their motto/trade mark wotsit...

    'I Cut My Way'

    Here's a couple of pics of one of my William Rodgers sheath knives with it on...
