    The Ek knife pictured above was purchased directly from John
    Ek's son. It is named to a Captain in the U.S. Special Forces
    who sent it back to the Ek factory to be fitted with a crossguard.
    Instead of reworking the knife, they sent him a new knife. This
    particular knife then set for years in a display case at the Ek
    Knives showroom.

    I did own a cast handle Fairbairn which was comissioned by the US Rangers over here in England prior to D-Day.
    I gather they came in two colours ... black painted hand grip and green.

    Unfortunately I don't own the dagger anymore !

    Hi Phil,
    That is a rare one.
    It is called a Kennedy Arms Knife. No one knows
    for sure who made them but they are stamped
    Kennedy Bros. Arms co. St.Paul Minn.

    The only thing we have been able to find out about
    Kennedy Broes was that they were last listed in the
    1945-46 St.Paul phone book as a dealer of arms and
    sporting goods.

    I have only seen 3 or 4 of these ever being listed.
