    Default F-S style presentation dagger

    Back in the 1980s I started to try to get back into collecting fighting knives
    and daggers. I went to a military show where a dealer tried to sell me a
    chrome plated F-S knife. I took a look at it and saw it was marked "Japan Sword"
    so I handed the knife back to the dealer and chastized him for trying to sell me
    an obviously fake British Commando dagger. he was asking $90 for it.

    I was young and dumb and had never heard of the Vietnam era presentation daggers.
    So for years now I have been trying to find a US Special Forces presentation dagger
    for a reasonable price.

    This is not a commemorative knife sold to collectors. These were given out by
    the special forces to some men upon there their completion of a tour of duty in Vietnam
    or for recognition for some other specific task completed.

    I've a WWII D Day cased commemorative type for years in my collection produced by Wilkinson Swords. Features gold handle, cross guard and pommel cap. It is an etched commemorative type.

    Nice commemorative knife. It deserves it's own thread.
