Really a beauty pattern for the discriminating collector. The blade is nicely marked WKC under the clamshell. Sorry very hard to photograph but trust me it's there. This is pattern is WKC 1051, (thanks Gary), 90% of these are unmarked. The uncleaned triple etched surface is in excellent shape being a nice crisp frosted etch that is nice and dark. The spine pattern is a leaf motif. There is a bit of age towards the tip. The blade measures 10" and rates an Exc++. Original brown leather buffer pad intact. The brass based hilt has nice gilt. The clamshell has a boar motif that is the most stunning I have ever seen. Look at he hand work here. Perhaps to most detailed Forestry I've has the pleasure to own. An oak-leaf theme runs through the D-guard terminating with the classic deer hoof. Perfect celluloid grip plates have 3 acorns and oak leaf gilt brass inserts. All scabbard fittings are again brass with gilt. These components have sub-assembly #'s under the brass staples. Look at the lower fitting , this was all hand done!! There is no wear to the leather and just the most minor age. All the stitches are intact. A wonderful example of the best quality Forestry available in the period.
