A near mint original Indonesian Fairbairn Sykes fighting knife or dagger. (see page 216 of The Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife & Other Commando Knives by Flook regarding Post War FS knives). Although there is not an actual photograph along with the description in Ron Flook's book on this page it is because there was not one available. This Post War example has an undamaged blackened knurled alloy handle with original paint. The handle has a 20mm band which is unpainted and shows as brass with an image on which is repeated on the scabbard. The black finished oval crossguard is unstamped. The blade is painted black and in excellent condition and has "Marinir" on the ricasso (Indonesian Marine Corps). It has a 50mm serrated edge near to the ricasso. It is complete with original black leather scabbard with external blackened brass chape and a belt loop being part of the front of the scabbard. There is a steel webbing hanging loop for attaching the scabbard to webbing at the top of the scabbard. There is a press stud leather retaining strap for the knife with a brass button.
