Beaded and Ribbed F.S. fighting knife.
Brass handled Fairburn Sykes fighting knife, the handle featuring the so called \'beaded and ribbed\' finish to aid grip. The handle also features an inspection mark close to the crossguard, which comprises an arrow over either a 1 or 4, difficult to distinguish. The blued, machine ground blade is in good condition with evidence of sharpening and use. The tip is slightly rounded and there are two knicks to the blade, to the right looking down the blade. The handle is good with some minor dents and abrasions. Comes with a good condition scabbard, the type often associated with Wilkinson production with a flattened chape. A good condition, used example of an increasing uncommon F.S. variant.
