This knife is in fantastic condition, and apart from some light scratching to the surface of the blade is in virtually mint condition! Brass checquered hilt has 99% of the blued finish still present. Blade has perfect needle point, Etched \'FS Fighting knife\' panel on one side, \'Wilkinson sword\' on the other. Blade surface has been cleaned with wire wool or similar, so has some fine surface scratches. Scabbard is beautiful, original brown colour leather, all blue finish on steel tip.
