I wanted to address a few things concerning knives out there on the internet for sale. Lets begin by understanding that any knife that says WW-II Fairbairn with a damascus blade is NOT a WW-II knife. Any of the ones with unusual grips or steel grips are most likely made in India. Some of these have been artificially patinated or are older models but not WW-II. If you have any doubts ask where it was made. If the logo is spelled WILKNSON, with an "i" missing it is an India made knife. They are not terrible knives but they are not WW-II and should not command prices of a WW-II F-S. Note the unusual shape of the pommel . These knives come with wooden grip section and all metal. Nice looking knife but definitely not WW-II. Some of these knives clearly state Pakistan but many are not so obvious.
No original F-S knives had a square ricasso except the First Pattern. This is a dead giveaway.
