    Look here. The link above is in Dutch, but good to compare.
    Your dagger is a very nice piece. Do you still have the scabbard?

    Not military issued, just a post war non military FS, still made today (i think) by this company John Nohill & son/J. Adams Ltd. If you look for an issued FS get a 3th pattern from ww2 or in the link i gave their is info about issued post ww2 FS's.

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

    Are they faked ?
