Escape Knife.An example of the very desirable and sought after Escape Knife. Devised by Clayton Hutton of MI9 drawing on earlier Victorian designs, these knives were issued to members of the SOE, OSS, RAF and other Special Forces. This example is in ' tool box ' condition with only 20% of it's original bluing remaining and typically missing one of the saw blades which were notoriously fragile. In all other resects all tools and blades are present and operable with the knife blade showing signs of sharpening. This example would reward a little TLC.
