    I'm no expert, but it kind of looks the the #2 commando knife I have except mine does not have that line running down the side of the handle, but otherwise it looks almost the same, but I will leave it to the experts,but if it is then you grabbed a 200.00 knife cheap! best of luck I hope thats what you got. my eyes are not the best, but on top is that a brass nut, or is it made into the handle? I'm not the best to be asking, but I'm pretty sure if it's a nut, then it is older, I know I bought a newer knife, the handle was all solid.

    i got the same answer from a friend whos in love with these things and actually saw it the day before at the swap meet. he said he really wanted to get it but the guy was asking over $100 for it. when i saw it ,the guy was asking $75 and i told him id walk around and think it over. a little later he saw me buy a chainsaw and said he'd give it to me for $60! so i popped on it. my friend said its also a no.2 design. Thanks for the info! ~Dean

    you are correct! it is a round nut and not a part of the handle. i also bought from the same guy a german 2nd class wound badge and a german canteen($60 for both).

    sweet, you snagged some deals today, the only difference on my #2 knife is right over the hand gaurd, well thats what I call it, it has a II, then a little down pointing arrow & only says England on top of the handgaurd, , but they look the same, good snag on everything you bought, I payed about 40 bucks just for a wound badge, but I love those things, good deal man, I can't ever find anything cheap, oh well. welcome to the forums also. oh yeah look on ebay, any ww2 British commando knife starts out at 200.00, scabbard , or not.

    that ***** I hate people that steal, but no, I have 2 commando knives & 1 scabbard, so I really don't need another one, my other one has glove leather hand sewn on the handle& the handguard is brass & has the makers name stamped on it, Ilike the helmet, I only have my SS helmet, but I got it restored, so now I regret that, but thats life, but I have about 5 or 6 m-1 american helmets, ones a para, & 1 cherry British helmet. you snatched up some nice stuff today, you must be in Europe, it's hard to find anything in america, unless you take your chances on ebay, or every now & then I find a thing or 2. BY the way if it's waffen SS, that is my favorite stuff. I like helmets & bayonets& other edged weapons. well then again also my rifles, m-1 carbine, broken right now, a mauser & an ak-47. keep getting those deals, best of luck.

    the SS armband you are talking about, now I'm not an expert, but I have seen them pinned together instead of sewn together. nice guns , yeah I wish I had left my helmet the way it was, but that stuff is hard to find where I live, the liner was gone, etc, oh well it's been done. anyway if it's waffen SS, then I love it.
