ON HOLD FOR CUSTOMER ### NEW LISTING ### 20/8/15WW2 BRITISH OFFICERS STAGHORN GRIP FAIRBAIRN SYKES WITH ORIGINAL WW2 SHEATH
An interesting rare and unusual WW2 British Officers private purchase Staghorn Grip Fairbairn Sykes originally made by Swaine & Aldney Ltd. Military Outfitters of Piccadilly, London W1. It comes ts original leather sheath.
Staghorn was prized for its gripping ability particularly in the constant wetness of the jungle but this meant every knife had to be hand made at some expense. This classic Swaine & Aldney Staghorn Grip Fairbairn Sykes is shown on page 73 of Ron Flook`s really excellent book " British and Commonwealth Military Knives".
Please note we have an unusual variation of the classic Swaine & Aldney for sale on Gun Star at the moment.
Blade length about 16.6 cm and overall length about 25.7 cm.
The sheath is the standard Swaine & Aldney knife sheath
Some staining to the sheath and frog but otherwise nice condition and a very interesting and rare Swaine & Aldney.
