    Default Another Rare F/S Dagger

    I bought this off the internet from a fellow in Quebec, it came with a very nice complete F & W Canadian Mills 36 and the scabbard I posted in another thread.
    When I got the dagger I thought it was somewhat rough and not worth what I paid, however the fellow that runs the F/G website told me it was a very rare type of 3rd pattern F/S, and is rarer that a 2nd Pattern. Even in this condition it turns out to be worth far more than I paid for it.
    Sometimes it pays to take chances

    A Bit rough, however I would say it is good honest use that caused it.

    Dean, congrats on a very nice score. A seldom seen knife. I've been looking for one of those for a while now.

    Cheers,
    Tony

    It is the etch on that #3 that makes it rare. I know
    that #3s with hand ground blades are not common
    but I don't know if they are rare.

    I've got a couple non-etched examples.

    BTW- nice knife
