As with the Second Pattern F-S Fighting Knife some examples were privately purchased and etched with a personal banner. This of course adds an even rarer element to this elusive pattern of F-S. With different finishes, etchings and production anomalies one can make this pattern a study in its own right. Although finding such examples will always be challenging.

The original Wilkinson Sword Third Pattern F-S Fighting Knife is a rare beast indeed. In contrast to its predecessor, the Second Pattern and even the elusive First Pattern, the Third Pattern is a difficult knife to find. Of course the ‘un-etched’ examples such as those marked with a broad arrow and ‘B2’ and ‘I’ which were also made by Wilkinson are much more prevalent but the knives that are etched are a challenge to find. As such this gallery will include not only rare original wartime ‘etched’ examples of the Wilkinson Third Pattern but for added interest I will also include here examples of the ‘⩚B2’ and ‘⩚I’ inspected knives. I will also include the occasional early post war knives, some of which are exceptionally rare in their own right.
