Details

The Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife was designed by Captains W.E. Fairbairn and E.A. Sykes at the Commando Special Training Centre, located in the Scottish Highlands at Achnacarry. Both former members of the Shanghai Police Force, Fairbairn and Sykes had returned to England at the beginning of the Second World War, where they were commissioned as Captains to instruct British Commandos in knife fighting, unarmed combat, and self defence. The knife was adopted by the British Army and soon proved extremely popular with British special forces.

The 2nd Pattern FS knife was a simplified version of the earlier 1st Pattern that was introduced in around June 1941 in order to increase production. This pattern had a straight crossguard and a blade that was drop-forged and machine ground, before being finished by hand.

The presentation 2nd Pattern knives have a polished high carbon steel blade with a brass handle. They come in a simple display box.
