PLEASE NOTE ERROR...The blade length is 11.5 cm long not 2.5 cm long APOLOGIES!### NEW LISTING 18/5/16 #### VINTAGE MILITARY PATTERN SYKES FAIRBAIRN BLADE DIVING KNIFE WITH SERRATED SAWBACK BLADE AND ORIGINAL DIVERS SHEATH WITH BOTH ORIGINAL LEG STRAPS.
Overall very nice / excellent condition.
This is much more reminiscent of a military trench knife than the the usual pattern and design of divers knives and this may have been originally designed for use by the Italian equivalent of the British SBS or similar? It is a nice quality Italian made "Mares Sub" Knife with a Sykes Fairbairn 11.5 cm Double Edged Stilleto Blade Obviously Modelled on a British Sykes Fairbairn Commando Dagger Blade. The blade also has on one side a fine sawback / serrated edge.Edge Knife overall length about 25.7 cm. The knife has a hard black plastic one piece grip with a back curving guard again more reminiscent of a military trench knife than a divers knife. Also has a heavy steel butt plate for use as a hammer.
Also comes with its original black palstic resin sheath and both its original rubber leg straps and buckles
The knife is held in place with a black rubber? split ring and the back section above the sheath is made of a "flexible" resin rubber plastic that bends backwards to allow the knife back in the sheath.
Must be of some vintage as we can only find a single photo of this knife (without any information) on the internet.If anyone has any info please email;Thanks
