An extremely rare British WW2 Wilkinson 3rd Pattern Commando Dagger. Although the 3rd pattern is not uncommon, very few are found with a maker's name of Wilkinson to the blade forte. With ribbed zinc-alloy grip. This was the final pattern of British commando knives and was introduced partly as a result of economies towards the end of the war (1943-1945). The ribbed grip was also a good design improvement as it allowed better grip and purchase when holding in the hand.
Wilkinson maker's name to blade forte
The double-edged blade has the remains of a Wilkinson maker's name to the forte. In good overall condition - most original blueing remains to the crossguard and scabbard chape - elasticated band a little loose. Blade length is 7 inches (11.5 inches overall).
