BRITISH AIR FORCE AIRCREW EMERGENCY KNIFE WITH STEEL SCABBARD
BRITISH AIR FORCE AIRCREW EMERGENCY KNIFE WITH STEEL SCABBARD.
Please see Ron Flook's superb book; "British & Commonwealth Military Knives", page 99 plate#226. These knives were introduced in the 1960's. The exsample in the book is marked George ibberson, but this knife is unmarked. The knife was attached to the right leg of the flying suit by a fabric patch. The knife blades measures 4", and overall is 8". The knife is attached to the metal scabbard (marked 22c/2202) by means of a spring lock pin released by two metal levers on the side of the knife. The handles are a black plastic composition. The blade remains in unsharpened condition with contact marks from being inserted in and out from the metal scabbard.
If you have any questions regarding this, or any Allied Military Fighting Knife 1941-1975, please let me know. This has been my passion: collecting and dealing in the WW2 Fairbairn-Sykes British Commando Fighting Knife, U.S. M-3 Trench Knife, Mk.2 USN/USMC Utility & Fighting Knives, Military Pocket Knives, Randall Model 1 & 2, Gerber Mk.2 Fighting Knife, and most all others as well. I personally guarantee the authenticity of any knife that I sell. My grading is accurate and conservative.
