Note that in order to comply with UK law I will only sell knives to persons over 18.   If you are a new customer or are otherwise unknown to me please do not be offended if I ask for proof of age.

​​​As a collector myself I know that finances can at times be tight and we may not always be able to buy what we want.    However I have had a couple of instances recently where I have gone to the trouble of getting postage  and insurance quotes and the deal struck with payment promised.  Only for the potential buyer to back out at the very last minute and in one instance I had in the meantime told a regular customer that the piece had sold.   I am always happy to co-operate and work with serious buyers if for more expensive items a payment plan is in order.    

 It is also worth mentioning for overseas buyers (i.e. outside of the EU) that I will work with you in terms of customs forms and value.   Items will always be sent by tracked a signed for, where it is available for your country.  However note that insurance can be very expensive but if you choose not to take it or wish it at a low value it would be at your risk.​​​


 ​Original 1942 dated 2nd Pattern F-S drawing.


I am lucky enough to own the original Wilkinson tracing drawing of the 2nd Pattern F-S produced in 1942.    Some years ago I did a limited number of reprints of this drawing but since then it has been filed away.    If there is sufficient interest I will look to redo the reprints at full size.   The size being 23.5 inches by 33 inches.      A copy of the drawing is shown below.   Price including UK postage will be £22. Prices for overseas vary depending on USA, Australia, Europe. will get postage once I know your location.   I can also do this drawing in A3 though price remains the same i.e. £22.


























 A very rare one of a kind Wilkinson Shakespear Knife blade with sheath.   This style of Shakespear knife blade and its accompanying sheath is of a style never previously noted with Shakespear knives, and was shown in my London Knife Book.   The blade is a flat "oval" shape and carries the etched panel of SHAKESPEAR KNIFE WILKINSON PALL MALL.   The tang has flat section and a threaded top which is unlike that seen with other Shakespear knives.  Also the sheath is a plain tan leather with belt flap.   There is some staining to blade and a very slight 'ding' at the tip.    The piece shows all the signs of never having been completely assembled with a grip, and the blade form and sheath are considered to be a unique examples.   Blade length is 8 inches.    Of note that a Shakespear Knife of standard form recently sold for in excess of $10000.    £650.  NOW RESERVED


​​​World War 1 German folding lock knife by MERCATOR.    Blade is full with some staining and a few marks. it is marked 

MERCATOR SOLINGEN.  Back of grip marked MERCATOR DRGM.    I am unsure if the black paint is original or not.

These are getting scarce.  £130 incl UK postage.
