WWII V-42 Elite Special Forces Knife
Windlass Steelcrafts

Devil's Brigade Stiletto

The V42 was a stiletto styled fighting knife based on the popular Fairbairn Sykes and issued during the Second World War to the First Special Service Force or Devil's Brigade, a joint Canadian/American commando unit. Originals are very scarce, but this faithful, collector quality reproduction is sharp and battle ready. Features 1095 high carbon blued steel double edged blade (both edges are razor sharp). Grooved thumb rest in the ricasso for improved control when thrusting, pointed steel skull crusher pommel. Leather washer grip with leather cross guard buffer (the leather buffer was only attached through the tang, it was not attached to the back of the cross guard). Comes with low-ride top grain leather scabbard with steel reinforcing, fits belts up to 3" wide, and leather leg thong. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.

Reliks Customer Reviews

Reviewed by owners of this product

"not bad at all, clasp on sheath doesn't close,no big deal for my purposes" - (4/5)

Reliks Response - The clasp will loosen with use, they are very tight on new knives until the leather breaks in.

"The V-42 arrived very quickly and is a fine blade. I have handled original FSSF V-42sat the Petawawa Airborne Forces Museum and this is an excellent reproduction. Sharp, fits the hand well, perfect balance. Well done." - (5/5)
