    This is the best balanced dagger I have held. It is solid and comfortable in the hand. Years ago, I had bought a modern iteration of a Fairbairn Sykes. There is simply no comparison. Magnificent blade!

    I have one made by the current British military contractor, and this one is better. Finish/bluing is just beautiful. Very solid, strong construction. One of Windlass' best.

    The entire knife is made out of steel. I took the nut off the back and took it apart. A magnet I have would gling to all four pieces of the knife. There is a very hard coating of something on the handle to keep it from rusting. This knife has a very real feel to it unlike other commando knives. And unlike other commando knives the tang is squared off instead of entering the hilt diamond shaped. This gives the knife the added strength a fighting knife should have. The only problem I had is that the two edges weren't sharpened to a point. Very dull. I received this item in very good shape. No rust.

    Better than a Sheffield dagger purchased 10+ years ago. The ACC/Windlass blade is slightly thicker and symmetric as opposed to the Sheffield one purchased. The leather sheath is also better made. The dimensions are true as noted in the description by ACC.
