    Default Fighting Knife ?

    I don't really know if this is the right area for this but I thought I'd cast a wide net while trying to ID this one. I thought it might be a British Fairbairn Sykes with a replaced grip, or as another member suggested possibly a German/Austrian fighting knife. I've posted it in the TR forum too.

    Thanks folks.

    I tend to agree with the F-S theory

    I think the blade is too wide for the length to be an FS blade.

    Thanks for looking guys, it is a bit of a mystery. I'll measure it up when I get home and see if that can be of any use.

    I don't think it was a FS dagger to start with IMO.

    I noticed that as well and figured the the tip had been broken
    and then the blade reshaped. Not that unusual for a FS knife.

    The shape of the grip is beginning to make me wonder about it being German now. It looks like it's trying to emulate an SA/SS dagger grip in shape, perhaps field made by an ex SA man? Just thinking out loud. I'm fairly sure the grip is a hand made addition.

    Lol!!! I was thinking the same thing the other day when I read your post. Was going to joke that it was a rare 100% original SA variant being sold by S*y*d*rs Treasures

    Micheal I love the quotes in your sig. I worry about the first one myself, and the second one I hear regularly

    Thanks! Glad you like them. I think they are classic and SO true.

    My wife gives me one room in the house (a small one at that). How much I spend, she doesn't care (as long as retirement and college funds are funded first!!!) Being a CPA/Tax Accountant she's no dummy and didn't buy my "story" of how these only go up in value, hence her quote!!!

    As far as the first quote, I now keep a list of all my items, how much I spent, what they are in a nice fireproof safe (to be opened by her when I'm gone )
