Nice 3rd pattern war-time FS dagger, more info here
Forming of Commando Units demanded fighting knives
british commando knife 3rd pattern
as for the price in the UK they go for £80-150 depend on overall condition. Congrats
only that price for a ww2 commando knife?
you see it's a 3rd pattern , wery large numbers were made. If it was 2nd with etching it will hit up to 400-450 or more. 1st patterns ... O well, 1k would be considered a good find
Think the estimate is a bit on the low side, more 150 to 300 and a bit more, if it would have been etched with FS/Wilkinson the sky is the limit... 2nd pattern do also more than 400.....te most expensive one i know that is for sale is 4000 us$....
B2 where thought to be made by BSA in WW2 but lot of collectors think they are actually Wilkinson made...A new book about the FS will come out soon that might have some actual proof about these B2 marked FS's.
Anyway looks like a nice 3th pattern you have here!
