The Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife, Vintage Edged Weapon

1894

Invented by developed by William Ewart Fairbairn and Eric Anthony Sykes after seeing the rough side of the world and used by the Commandos in WWII, then by the likes of the SAS, SBS, etc for generations afterward, the good old-fashioned FS knife is straight up and down deadly.

If you don’t believe me, just ask the commando interviewed below. The old fighter may be a little thicker and a little slower than he was in 1944, but don’t think he can’t still use that fighting knife if he had to.
