    Default William Rodgers " i cut my way"

    Hi folks a little something i picked up,, i have seen so many of these never military issue but some private purchase late and post war,,this one caught my i firstly because of the s shaped cross guard (most are flat) and second it was only £5..
    so basically a cheap space filler.

    I have a knife which is identical in size and construction to yours, except it is not stamped with the maker's name and 'made in England'. It was certainly bought in England sometime in the late 1970s. I remember that I saw it a display of sheath knives from the same makers and liked the look of it because of the 'commando' type blade. Somehow managed to persuade my parents that I needed it for my Scout woodcraft. I'd guess that the cross guard on yours has been modified by a previous owner.

    Cheers Phil, great story, kind of an odd blade for a boy scout though,, it appears to have only one purpose,, killing, i agree with the crossguard theory too it fits very snug.

    Nice knife!

    I have one which is similar but with a serrated edge to one side of it. I'm not sure how old mine is but I'd say it's of fairly recent manufacture, within the last 25 years or so I'd guess?

    The pics kind of enhance it a bit alas, the blade is well scratched along one edge where it looks like someone has tried to sharpen it...badly!
    There is a bit of a tale about the knife involving a member of the RM's/SBS but it has the hint of 'a load of bollocks' about it...so I tend to just dismiss it.
