    I can read ;
    Wilkinson
    NO????

    IMO, if that says Wilkinson at the top, it would be far off center.
    Regardless, it is a nice example of a war time made, third pattern FS knife.

    I will move this to the FS section.

    Thanks Ralph. I didn't know there was an FS section! I will have a look.

    Your FS knife was made by William Rodgers of Sheffield England.
    This mark on your crossguard is just turned 90 degrees compared to this one.

    Got a feeling there will be a cast mark. I will look again later

    Some full length photos of the entire knife and scabbard would be nice too. The crossguard is of the thinner type which may indicate late war/ early post war period of manufacture.

    Am I right in saying this is a post war blade? It doesn't have a triangular part near the crossguard I'm told.
