    Nohill is correct, but, what´s about the military acceptance marks, ("broad arrow" and WD for war department) ?

    Are they faked ?
    No, 'Nohill' is not correct.

    J. Nowill and Sons, Sheffield were makers of these

    Correct, sorry, Nowill and sons it is!
    Gouldy that picture is taken fro an angle and doesnt show much detail. Better ask for better pics..
    The WD marking, from what i understand was stopped somewhere 1895 (with few rare exemptions of some folding knives) anyway any so called military marking on a civil product is not real.
    Enjoy your weekend Gents!

    Good morning Reibert have a look at this site here it is very informative and I found it a great help while I was researching a 2nd pattern that I was looking at purchasing. ( The Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knives - Introduction ) You will find the links on the top right corner most usefull particularly the wilkinson site second one down when you open the the link.
