British military deck knife likely made by Joseph Rodgers in Sheffield, original leather sheath included. Official Cold War era military equipment dated 1988; scarce UNUSED condition

Original Cold War era British Royal Navy “deck knife”; made in 1988 in Sheffield, England, likely made by Joseph Rodgers. The knife is in scarce unused condition with some minor surface rust on the blade from poor storage. Not a super-rare military knife but pretty scarce in its original unused condition. This exact type is illustrated on page 83 of the excellent reference book BRITISH AND COMMONWEALTH MILITARY KNIVES by Ron Flook (see the book’s pages scans attached).

This is a solid, well-built full-tang construction knife with a satin-polished blade and non-rot rosewood handle scales on bronze pins. The handle is stamped SHEFFIELD / ENGLAND on one side. The knife is about 8-1/5″ / 21 cm overall; the blade is about 4-3/8” / 11.1 cm. Original factory edge is razor-sharp, the tip is intact. This small knife is very well-balanced and sits comfortably in the hand. Original black leather sheath is also unused; scarce this nice. The knife is marked with the manufacture date 1988 ↑ “broad arrow” / 5110-99-437-5839 British nomenclature (store) number on one side the other. The handle is solid; all parts are tight. This British military deck knife is in excellent overall condition; don’t miss your chance to add it to your collection!

This British military deck knife has not been cleaned or tampered with in any way, the set is in 100% original “as is” condition. These are the actual photos. I have a few more vintage British and American-made knives, as well as WW2 era combat knives and bayonets, scarce WW1 and WW2 fighting daggers and trench knives from other countries available for sale – please take a look in our Militaria section.
