    WW2 RAF Folding Knife

    WW2 RAF Folding Knife

    Item details

    A scarce example of the RAF folding knife, as issued with the Beadon, or lightweight flying suit.

    RAF Stores code 22P/11.

    It measures 4.75 inches when closed. 4 inch main blade, and 3.75 inch square spike. Original blued finish all over. Strong springs and lock up. Small nick towards the tip of the main blade. Completely unmarked.

    I have heard various stories of these being included in Red Cross Parcels to POW's, and dropped to the Resistance. There is a not unconvincing argument that the blunt edged spike blade is well suited for making timer shaped holes in PE charges.

    Either way, this is a hard to find example of a simple, yet effective folding knife. 

    Strictly over 18's only. Photo ID will be required before this item can be dispatched.
