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 cheaper 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 knife has the standard black finish and comes with the traditional metal tip (Chape) on the leather leg sheath.
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 your choice of the widely used leg sheath which has sew-on leg tabs and silent elastic retention loop or a simple low profile belt sheath.
The current Pattern Commando Knife has a low lustre blackened blade and no visble 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.
