Foreign Legion Paratroopers Knife


Our WWII Foreign Legion Paratroopers Knife has an aluminium grenade handle and paratrooper markings on the blackened high carbon steel blade and sheath.
In stock


At a recent auction we came across an original and rare variant of the Fairbairn-Sykes Commando dagger. It had an aluminum grenade style handle and Foreign Legion & paratrooper markings on the blade as well as the sheath. We were so taken by the feel and looks we replicated it exactly.

Our Foreign Legion Paratroopers Knife includes the sheath as issued with the original. The high carbon steel blade is blackened. 

Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.

Cannot be shipped to CA, MA or NY.

Very nice
A long time ago I found a similar knife like this one but it was junk. The blade bent easily and forget sharpening it. This knife is a real high quality knife. I've seen real ones before.. this one looks and feels like the original. Impressive.

Another good fighting knife
Just received my paratrooper knife today.  Love the handle with the machined grenade effect.  Grips good with wet hands.  I thought with the aluminum grip it would affect the balance.  Not bad at all.   Now, maybe Windlass will come out with a Marine Raider stiletto.

Quality Knife...but
I have several different versions of the Fairbairn-Sykes knife and the V42 that the US copied from it.  This one is a nice addition to my collection, with one exception...the "grenade handle" is nicely made, but when the grooves were machined, no effort was made to relieve the edges of the grooves.  As a result, it almost cuts into your hand when you grip it.  If the handle were cast WITH the grooves, or if the edges of the grooves were relieved, I would like it a lot better.

I just received my Foreign Legion Paratrooper knife,  This is a beautiful and highly unusual commando dagger.  The quality is first class, strong, well made,  light and an outstanding design.  

I love it!
