Fairbairn-Sykes Royal Marine Commando Knife

In 1940, Captains Fairbairn and Sykes met at the offices of Wilkinson Sword to discuss and refine the design of a knife, which came to be the ultimate fighting knife of its time and the knife they designed went to three different patterns. The knife would have been carried in a rawhide leather scabbard with first a nickel but later a blackened metal chape with an elastic strap retainer and a pair of ‘tabs’; sewn to the scabbard to allow the wearer to sew the scabbard to his uniform clothing. It was never intended as a throwing knife.

The knife displayed is based on the 2nd Pattern and retains the tapering pointed blade of diamond section 7” long, with a cross guard of 2”. The grip now has a finely turned and precision machined finish and retains its perfect balance. This FS Knife is manufactured in England with the carbon steel blade being produced in Sheffield.
