This is a high quality accurate reproduction of the legendary 2nd pattern Fairbairn-Sykes Commando knife.

The 1st pattern FS knives and many 2nd patterns were made with bright nickel plated grips and guards, and had polished blades, with nickel plated scabbard chapes to match. This followed the original philosophy of William Fairbairn, who stated "I believe that a knife should be bright and highly polished for the reason that 20% of the fight is lost by not striking awe in the mind of the victim that a flashing knife gives."


Our reproductions are exacting in all dimensions, form and detail.

Features include:

  • 7 inch EN45 spring steel blades.
  • Blades are a full 1/4 inch thick at ricasso (with flat triangular faces) and distal taper to point.
  • Full tang.
  • 1/8 inch thick steel guards.
  • Broad Arrow stamp on upper guard face.
  • Brass diamond knurled grips (cast directly from original)
  • Steel top nuts
  • Accurate balance overall (approx. 1 inch back from guard)
  • Accurate pattern scabbards with riveted brass chapes, securing tabs and brown elastic retaining straps.

Original knives of this type are highly collectable and rare to find. Own a high quality reproduction for a fraction of the price today!
