Wilkinson and the F-S Fighting Knife

Wilkinson and the F-S Fighting Knife
Robert Wilkinson Latham

This reference book is based on archive evidence from the Wilkinson Sword Contract book, and the original drawings from 1942. The work also draws on letters and memoirs of contemporary 'users' and interviews with the men who made them, those who etched the blades and sewed the scabbards.

The knife's background, of its conception and often clandestine use during World War II has led to much mystique and some spurious information. This book sets the record straight.

Full details of issues, types and Wilkinson production figures are shown in detail together with contemporary documents.

The story is bought up to date with the issue of knives in 1982 for the Falklands and with the listing of the numerous Commemorative issues.
