This Famous Commando knife has been in service with the British Royal Marine Commandos since 1943. Quality manufacturing techniques and the finest Sheffield steel are used to create these knives by long established UK Military contractors - these are not cheap copies, these knifes are made in England. Due to the popularity of these knives, we offer 3 versions of the Fairbairn Sykes. All versions feature a full length tang and a stiletto blade that is hardened to Rockwell C52.
The standard 3rd Pattern Commando Knife has the Ministry of Defence "Pheon" marking and manufacturers marks on the crossguard and handle. It is available with a highly polished blade, or traditional parkerised finish and comes with a leather sheath which has belt loops, sew-on leg tabs and a silent elastic retention loop. A blackened steel chape protects the blade tip when sheathed.
The current Pattern Commando Knife has a low lustre blackened blade and no visible markings, in line with current Military specifications. It is supplied with a standard issue best bridle leather leg sheath with sew-on leg tabs and a "silent release" elastic retention loop. This version comes with a manufacturers letter of authenticity.
