    Default Commorative FS by Wilkinson Sword of London

    I know this is not very old but as it is an actual Wilkinson made FS I thought it would be okay to post it.
    This is probably the first FS that I ever purchased. It was so long ago that I don't remember sure.
    It comes in it's own case including copies of the Act of Military Surrender with facsimiles of the signatures. It is a numbered piece with a certificate of authenticity. It has a rosewood and brass handle. The etching on the blade is very well done with the Wilkinson logo included. The dedication on the blade is gold gilt filled.

    Wow, look how clean and crisp that etch is in the last picture.
    It's a beautiful dagger.

    BTW , I have a Wilkinson commmerative broad sword from early 1970s.

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    It is pretty minty and clean. It has been in the closed box ever since I bought it about 30 years ago.
    Around 1990 I saw an RCMP commemorative Wilkinson sword. I would have liked to purchase it but unfortunately, it was not for sale.

    I'm pretty sure that Greg has an FS or two somewhere.
