    I can't find anything else than that it's a Spanish Commando WW2 knife.

    Thumbs up Re: Spanish fighting knife

    I also have one of these knives, and it is supposedly used by Spanish Special Forces.

    There is a photo with caption of one in a book called 'Combat/Survival knives'
    by Leroy Thompson, which was published 15 - 20 years ago.

    IMO this is a post WWII knife ...

    They may well be post WWII. I bought my knife about 10 years ago,
    as it was quite unusual, has a very interesting blade, and I'd never
    seen one before. Since then I've only seen maybe 4 or 5,
    including the one above...............

    It's a poor design, really. It does not fit the hand well because
    the grip/handle is too small, and rather uncomfortable.
    I'd like to find a book or instruction manual on these
    if one was issued, to find out how they were
    supposed to be used.
    Regards,

    I am almost sure this knife is more a sort of a survival knife than a fighting knife. The Kukri like blade tells that. It's much more efficient as a light chopping tool, skinning on so forth, than for combat/fighting. I can say i have some knowledge about both categories of knives.

    It is a continuation of Spanish bayonet lineage,
    with 'bolo' shaped blade...........
