1953 British Army issue pocket knife, Sheffield made by RBS.

Military Collectors item.

This is a 1953 post war pattern of a British Army  issue 2 function soldiers pocket knife, in very nice  condition,  as can be seen in the pictures. It replaces the black bakelite handle model which was used from 1938.

  • Standard blade
  • Can opener

It is just one of a large collection of British army pocket knives, which I have recently inherited, many are WW2 dated and there about 11 different Sheffield manafacturers that I have identified so far.

They date from 1939 to 1951 and are all either two or three function pocket knives.

I will be listing the rest of these items in due course, if this one sells.

 The different Shefield makers include: 

  • Richards
  • Westby
  • Worstenholm
  • SSL
  • W&SB
  • Davenport
  • Slater
  • E. Blyde &co
  • Johnson &co
  • Holland

Due to current UK legislation these collectors items cannot be listed or sold on Ebay in the UK.

I will try and answer any question if I can.
