Here is a chance to own a piece of British history,

I only have the knife, sheath and survival kit. I don't have the booklet or box.

The knife has had little use, but has been sharpened.

The Dartmoor Knife has a full tang, and cut away to house the survival kit,
The kit comprises of: fishing hooks and shot weights, fire stick, needles.. ect it also has a liquid floating compass.
The sheath houses fishing line and snare wire.

It is all in very good condition.
(see pic's below)


Asking Price: £170 ono

I can post to buyer, but i don't know how much it will cost!!!
or pickup is fine.

HISTORY – WILKINSON SWORD DARTMOOR KNIFE

Wilkinson Sword began to manufacture the Mk I Survival Knife in 1986. The CSK185 Dartmoor Knife was released in early 2003 with updated alterations.

The Dartmoor Survival Knife was finished by Wilkinson Sword at their specialist swords-making division in Acton, London, which produced swords and knives for the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) for supply to the UK Armed Forces. This same factory made the swords for the Household Cavalry, the Fairbairn-Sykes Commando dagger, and the Ray Mears Bushcraft knives, amongst others.

In 2004, MOD awarded their swords and bayonets contract overseas and in 2005, the Wilkinson Sword factory was forced to close. With this, another piece of British manufacturing history disappeared. When the factory closed, production of the Mk II Dartmoor Survival Knife ceased. In total, 500 numbered CSK185 Dartmoor Knives and approximately 1000 without numbers had been sold.
