The Fairbairn Sykes dagger is a weapon well suited for silencing the enemy quickly and effectively. Otherwise known as the Stiletto knife, and most famously issued to the Commandos, it is just what they need in close quarter, one to one combat.
The knife was developed by Captains Fairbairn and Sykes in 1940. They had both served with the Shanghai Municipal Police and were experienced in martial arts which influenced the type of knife they considered the Commandos needed. Sykes idea was to create a knife that should be used delicately with surgical precision - ''as an artist uses his paint brush''. This classic design is what they came up with.
This knife is made in Sheffield by the only remaining company authorised to use the name legitimately, and they have been making them since they were first introduced.

The Classic Commando FS Fighting Knife
From the classic famous WW2 dagger design. Issued originally for the job of silencing enemy sentries quickly and silently in WW2. The Commando knife is a great collectors item, rather than outdoors useage knife. Looks fantastic mounted on the wall!
Pros: Own a great bit of history, Looks great., A blade collectors favourite, Classic design clean lines.
Cons: Not designed for slash cutting!, Not designed for chopping!, Not multi useage survival blade!
Would recommend: Yes
