    New Stabby Thing - Fairbairn Sykes Commando Knife

    My Fairbairn Sykes Commando Knife-


    Fairbairn?Sykes fighting knife - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "The FS fighting knife was made famous during World War II when issued to British Commandos, the Airborne Forces, the SAS and many other units, especially for the Normandy Landings in June 1944."




















    Manufactured by Samuel Staniforth in Sheffield, England. As I understand it the company has been making knives for over a hundred years and was an original maker of Fairbairn Sykes daggers in WWII.

    I've always loved those, and yours looks like a very nice example. I'm always on the lookout for an original, as well as a real deal "knuckle duster".
    I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

    I put the link to where I got mine at the bottom of the original post. I swear it was like 20 bucks less when I got mine. Probably the dollar sucking more hind teat.

    That being said, you can spend as much or as little as you want to have a Fairbairn-Sykes (From original to custom handmade to Chinese pot metal.)

    Right now that is $90.63 USD ...not too bad if its quality. Especially considering that some pocket knives cost that much

    I've carried one now on and off for over 25 years, I been fascinated with these since I was a kid, I got my first MOD version at a gunshow when I was 14. I have a few of them now but I always keep one in my gear.
