**RARE**Cased, Vietnam War U.S. Special Edition Presentation British Fairbairn Sykes FS Commando Fighting Knife Form Stiletto Dagger By Japan Sword Etched To The Airborne ‘5th Special Forces Group Vietnam’. ED 2475 - ED 2475

The 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) (5th SFG (A)) is one of the most decorated active duty United States Army Special Forces groups in the U.S. armed forces. The 5th SFG (A) saw extensive action in the Vietnam War and played a pivotal role in the early months of Operation Enduring Freedom. 5th Group—as it is sometime called—is designed to deploy and execute nine doctrinal missions: unconventional warfare, foreign internal defense, direct action, counter-insurgency, special reconnaissance, counter-terrorism, information operations, counterproliferation of weapon of mass destruction, and security force assistance. These Stiletto daggers by Japan Sword were based on the British FS fighting knife and were presented to numbers of the 5th Special forces group upon completion of tours in Vietnam (see page 136 of Thompson’s Commando dagger where he describes these daggers as “because of the mystique surrounding this unit in Vietnam this is probably the most sought after of the Special forces F.S’s”). This example has the correct FS form grip made up of 3 chequered sections separated by 2 un-chequered bands. The polished 170mm double edged blade with medial ridge is clean and correctly etched on one side ‘5th Special Forces Group Vietnam’. The cross guard is signed by the Japanese manufacturer ‘Japan Sword’ and has the crest of the 5th SFG. The dagger is contained in its original wooden case covered with green leatherette material. The case has a hinged lid and clasp fasteners. The inside of the case is lined with green felt. The interior is contoured to snugly fit the dagger. The price for this Vietnam war U.S. Special forces presentation piece includes UK delivery. ED 2475
