At daggers drawn – Rambler Made

At daggers drawn

Last week, Greg Dunn ( posted an #oldknifechallenge shot and requested me to do the same. I immediately knew what I wanted to contribute: this Fairbairn-Sykes Combat Knife that belonged to my grandfather. Unfortunately, I don’t know where it came from before him but its markings and wear shows that it has been used.⁣

Originally issued to British and Canadian soldiers in World War 2, the tool was purely a fighting knife through and through. The blade was designed to be long, extremely sharp at the point, and long enough to travel through heavy clothing.⁣

This knife means a lot to me, and its character and history (at least what I know of it) will be passed down.
