Interesting that this is a No2 pattern blade with a No3 pattern grip. not quite accurate. Also not being sharpened will mean that a lot of the authenticity of style has been lost. My B2 marked FS Fighting knife does not need sharpening from as it came direct from Wilkinson Sword in WWII. This blade should be the same

Better than a Sheffield dagger purchased 10+ years ago. The ACC/Windlass blade is slightly thicker and symmetric as opposed to the Sheffield one purchased. The leather sheath is also better made. The dimensions are true as noted in the description by ACC.

This is a wonderful piece of steel. From what I can tell, this is a replica of the P3 F-S knife, and of course the blade is full-tang. Some of that may have been easily assumed, some not so much, but it would definately be nice to see in the description offered above in the listing. As noted by others, the knife is exceptionally sturdy. The edge is not terribly sharp, however, and getting a good edge on it may take some time, and you may scuff the bluing in doing so. Because the knife has such a thick blade, and the factory pitch is so low, I'm certain sharpening will be a required task for the buyer. On the other hand, the F-S's primary strength was its point, and this has a wicked point for sure. Windlass also has pretty good reviews from the outside with regards to mass-production replicas, and you may find this site interesting in that regard: http://www.fairbairnsykesfightingknives.com/post-war-versions.html
