Fairbairn-Sykes Dagger With Ribbed & Beaded Grip
Dagger measures 11 3/4″ overall with a 6 3/4″ blued blade. Tip is off, blade shows 95% original blue finish with prominent cross graining. Brass grip with about 50% original black finish, marked with a broad arrow and number “1” at the base. Leather scabbard is soft and pliable, elastic band is broken, scabbard tabs have been removed. Nice example of an uncommon variation.
