  • Fairbairn Sykes commando knife

    I picked up a repo of an F.S. commando dagger. It is cool, but way under built. I would love to see what you guys could do as far as making one out of modern material and updating the style a bit.

        A hint......A design popular in the 1980's, no longer made, In Mexico it would be called a Bruja.

        This would be our interpretation of that pattern with a few changes along the way. Maybe a larger handle for one.

                  Now I know too, and the wait to get one is worse than the suspense of knowing what it is!!!

                    Hill knives from Rotterdam made a modern version of the F.S.
                    Top notch crafmanship.

                      I checked out that FS dagger. That is good stuff. I'm gonna have to look into getting myself one.

                        Sure is top notch craftsmanship. That's why I bought one.

                        Better send them an e-mail FAST. I don't think there's many left, there were only 250 made!

                        Kind regards,

                            A very stylish knife. There is a fellow that makes them in New Zealand as well.

                            I have no idea of the quality though:

                              Found a drawing of the Hill Knives commando dagger.



                              It's a bit beefier than the F.S.
