RAF WW11 Floating Dinghy Knife

An excellent example issued as part of the larger multi place H, Q and J type survival dinghies used on multi crew aircraft. Curved stainless steel blade with rounded 'safety' end to avoid inadvertently puncturing the inflation tubes of the dinghy.. The buoyant cork handle and lanyard ensured the knife wouldn't be lost overboard. The blade is in near perfect condition and is marked with stores reference number 27C/2023. The original lanyard is attached and shows some age staining. The knife is complete with leather scabbard and canvas backer, which carries stores reference number 27C/2024. These essential items of emergency equipment are becoming increasingly hard to find
