    Late war, third pattern FS fighting knife. There should be a mold number on the handle near the pommel, or maybe close to the guard.

    There is no mould number, that’s what’s making me think maybe post war. I’m fine with post war army issue, but not if it’s a repro.

    I still think it is a late war, third pattern, original, FS fighting knife.
    If post war, I would expect a maker's mark on the guard instead of just Sheffield England.

    Many thanks for your advise on this one, I’ll keep my fingers crossed for war time issue. That would be a bonus.

    Is the handle a base metal , with a copper plated and blackened finish.

    Most likely, they were cast or injection molded.

    Seems to be base metal and plated on mine. Sorry for all the questions just major lack of knowledge on these.

    Looks like cast metal with a brass nut to me.
