    Default Identification help - sorry post duplicated somehow..

    Hi All

    This is my first post and I’m here for some opinions on a knife I recently acquired. To me (and I am by noooooo means an expert!), it looks like a second pattern knife. Of course that doesn’t mean its original. There are a few things I’m not sure about though and it would be great to get your opinions.

    In no particular order, the inspection stamp on the hilt reads to me as a partial broad arrow pointing towards the cross guard and either a 6 or 9 Which way up should I be reading this?

    Also, is it fair to assume that given that the arrow is partial, I could be missing another digit too?

    The only marks I can see on the cross guard are what read to me as a partial crown and arrow with a serifed I or a 1. Or maybe it’s a B and an arrow, not a crown…can anybody see anything different here and/or does this tell us anything?

    Also the ‘F S’ logo is on one side of the blade, while the other is blank – I think I read somewhere that Wilkinson Sword had a monopoly on this logo, but can’t see any of their markings elsewhere on the knife. However, having a quick poke around this forum, that assertion seems to be completely untrue – correct?

    Lastly I’ve read here that fakes often have overly-thick cross guards? What qualifies as overly thick? I’m getting a reading of somewhere in the 3.5mm range on this knife…

    Thanks in advance folks!

    Cheers
