    Question F&S dagger commercial, or, Army issued ?

    Hi, mates !

    Got some blades, among them this F&S dagger, marked WILLIAM RODGERS SHEFFIELD ENGLAND upon the crossguard.

    I´m not doin´ in FS-daggers, so, my question:
    Is this an "commercial", or, an Army-issued FS ? ...

    Thx. in advance,

    R.
