    Default A pair of unearthed F&S 3rd pattern knives. Ruff.

    I have a pair of unearthed 3rd pattern knives. They were buried in a wooden box together with

    various other knick knacks and tins. I know not from when or how.

    Both zinc alloy handles are the worse for wear but still intact. On one there is still a copper

    hue between the concentric rings. The shorter (6 inches) blade is in a very rough state.

    The longer bladed knife (6 & 3/4 inches) has the remains of copper coating and the spots

    where it is bare are pitted so it seems that the coating protected the blade a fair amount.

    This particular knife's cross piece bears the WD and arrow stamp.

    They are in a bad state and I wonder whether they are genuine firstly, worth

    rejuvenating secondly or leave them as is?

    Thanks.
