    This is my dads old dagger when he was in the army in 1950s and done some reseach and am guessing its a F/S third pattarn 27 ribbbed handle from wilkinson sword as its got a blacked blade, apart from that it has no markings at all and the handle is possible brass.

    Anymore info on this would be great even if its real or not

    So what is it you look for to tell it's a post war blade?

    Hi Tommyrockstar. Welcome aboard.

    Ade is correct. it is a post war knife. The most obvious indication of that is the
    thickness of the crossguard. Wartime knives had a crossguard about twice as thick
    as postwar knives.

    here is one of my #3s next to yours. You can see the difference.

    Also, wartime 3rd pattern knives had a number molded into the grip.
    1,2,3 or 4.

    Mine has the #1 mold mark.

    These were available on the commercial market. My guess would be that he bought it
    from base supply store. Like the PX stores that are found on US bases.
