Unused, near-mint, hefty survival knife. Satin steel finish, lasered logo on blade says "WILKINSON SWORD/MADE IN ENGLAND," with finger notch forward of fingerguard. Comfortable fingerguard notched to receive the sheath's shock-cord retainer. Rubber handle has an inset lanyard rivet and locking (screw-down) pommel-nut marked with the Wilkinson "W." The nut's flip-out lever (see last two photos) folds flush into its flat pommel; newer Dartmoor knives have a bulging pommel. Unscrewing this nut allows access to a black survival-kit tube inside the handle. Sheath is hard plastic fused to two flexible-rubber belt hangers (one above & one below sheath's mid-length) and has a shock-cord loop that slips over fingerguard. The empty survival-kit tube (for small items, such as matches, fishhooks and line, safety pins, needles, thread, etc.) has a button compass built into its cap.

Heavy-weight knife, excellent for sawing and cutting as well aschopping. Blade is flat-sided (upper length) but flat-beveled along the lower length & on upper edge toward tip--with alternating sharp saw teeth on back edge. Although professionally sharpened four or five years ago, this model usually comes with an unsharpened blade edge. Sorry, but there's no box included. 

Measurements & related details (found online):blade length 7-1/4 inches (18.5 cm); total length 13½ inches (35.5 cm); blade thickness 1/4 inch (6 mm); knife weight 23 oz (640 g);total weight 30 oz (855 g); 440 stainless steel blade, with 57-58 HRC hardness. 

Why pay $800 or more for a new, boxed Dartmoor knife when this one's unused and going for cheap? It's virtually flawless, ready to stick into your collection, vehicle, camping gear, or bug-out bag!
