    Default Found a knife - Is this genuine? F-S Fighting Knife 1st Pattern

    I helped an older gentleman fix the roof on his house so he could sell and move down South. He offered me some tools from his shed - he wouldn't need them any longer. Found this in a box. Dismissed initially due to the fact that the blade is plated. Did a Google and I can't determine if this is genuine, and if it's of any value. Location - Eastern US. Set me straight. Thanks!

    looks like a 1st pattern to me, sadly been blunted on the end of the blade, interesting markings/no's on the grip

    Greetings,

    Here's a recent article on your specific knife. Knife Magazine Article February 2018 Mystery of The 30946 F-S Knives Solved Yes, I believe it is original, just in less than awesome condition.

    As for values, I don't discuss those.

    Cheers,

    That's really interesting; glad I didn't toss it - it might be of historic value to someone who knows the story. Thanks for the article! I guess the next logical step would be contacting the author and seeing if someone wants it.

    I'd me more than happy to keep everyone in the loop if you wish.
