JOSEPH RODGERS 1ST PATTERN F-S COMMANDO KNIFE

COMMANDO KNIVES

Available to collectors of knives and militaria for the first time in our long history, we are offering an authentic Joseph Rodgers First Pattern Fairbairn-Sykes Commando Knife, meaning that arguably the world’s greatest ever cutlery name is now present on arguably the world’s most famous knife.

The knife is proudly made by our Sheffield craftsmen and has been painstakingly recreated from samples taken from the first production batch in 1940 and by delving deep into the history of the Commando Knife. All the familiar first pattern features, as specified by Fairbairn and Sykes, are present - the characteristic flat ricasso, which is marked using traditional deep acid-etching; the instantly recognisable "s-shaped" cross-guard and the grip knurled with the distinctive chequered pattern.

BASE PRICE: £250.00

This blade features a Damascus pattern known as “Vinland”. Each piece of steel is carefully selected so that the characteristic “grain” of the material is revealed and emphasised by hand grinding, polishing and etching processes; the latter a method we have specially developed to produce a knife of breathtaking beauty. No two knives will be the same.

Our Damascus F-S Knives are made for presentation purposes with blades without a fully sharpened edge.

The front of the flat ricasso is marked with "THE F-S KNIFE" and the reverse deep acid etched with "JOSEPH RODGERS Star & Cross SHEFFIELD ENGLAND"
