    Hi all,

    Likely a fake fairbairn sykes but for the price it filled a gap in my collection with the checkered handle rather than a third pattern knife. It is larger than the third pattern knife that I own and has no visible markings. It came with the sheath in the pictures although it is too big to put the elastic over the handle.

    This is a neat knife.
    I was fairly certain that it was not an original of any sorts so I took
    the liberty of sending your pictures to the owner of "fsknife.com" and he confirmed
    that it is most likely a post war one-off copy.

    It appears to be very well made, much better than the fakes coming in from India and
    Pakistan. As you said, it makes a great filler.

    I was addicted to the "Hokey-Pokey" but I've turned
    myself around.
