Thank you and enjoy browsing my store! SOME ARE VERY RARE ITEMS.. Here is an authentic WWII issue British Commando knife/dagger. From the research I have done, this is a Type 2 Fairbairn Sykes with thick blade. This is marked with the "up arrow" and "B2" over ENGLAND.The blade is 6 3/4 long. See LAST pic for measurements. I could not get the nut off the top, so I just left it alone because I did not want to damage it. I think it will tighten up, but as it is now, it is loose.
The guard will move approx. 40 degrees to give you an idea of the looseness.
The blade has some discoloration but it is not rusted or pitted. There are traces of the original blackening on the blade.
These are VERY tough to find and are highly sought after. Please see pics and message me with any questions! 99% OF MY ITEMS COME FROM ESTATE AUCTIONS AND SALES!
I DO MY BEST TO DESCRIBE THINGS, BUT I DO NOT LOOK AT THINGS WITH A MAGNIFYING GLASS! I'M SORRY TO HAVE TO POST THIS, BUT I'M TIRED OF SOME PEOPLE ACCUSING ME OF MISLEADING THEM WHEN I MISS A 2mm SCRATCH OR DING! THE RATE SHOWN MAY NOT BE THE LOWEST PRICE AVAILABLE. WHEN YOU CHECK OUT YOU CAN CHOOSE WHICH RATE YOU WISH TO USE.
