Much better than expected !!
Appears to be an excellent knife for the money. I liked the fact that blade was "blued", rather than parkerized.
Apparently original knives were not parkerized.  Previous review states handle is wrapped, not leather "washers", but on knife I received, you really cant tell. Metallurgy: Looks good. Does not appear soft. Would I trust this knife in combat application? Probably not, but looks to be an excellent example for reenactors,  or display. Sheath: Pretty good interpretation of original style, but if I carried one, would probably change to leather,M-6 style with metal plates at tip area.  Overall a plesantly suprisingly nice V-42!!

Definitely recommend to a friend.
Good well built knife. No other knife I've found fits as well in my hand as the v42. Blued finish on blade is beautiful. It could use a little sharpening, although the blade tip is like a needle. I would have given 5 stars if the handle was leather washers. It's not, it's a wrapped leather thong, but still feels nice. Other than that, the only other thing is. The scabbard is about 2 inches to long for me. But overall I'm well satisfied. I would highly recommend this to a friend.

This is listed as the Elite Ranger dagger in the catalog but it’s a great dagger none the less!

DEVILS BRIGADE!
I really like this blade! Not only is it HISTORICALLY accurate, but the personal engraving is AWESOME! I went with the VIKING ITALCS & my SWEDISH BLOOD BOILS! The grip, ( you cannot see in picture ) is actually LEATHER WRAPPED! Remember, this particular commando dagger was designed by the SPECIAL FORCES COMMANDER HIMSELF! Leather WON’T freeze to your skin, or BURN you in the BLAZING HOT DESERT!

Another great fighting knife
Finally the V-42 has arrived.  Fantastic quality.  Sharp.  This knife really feels good in the hand.  I always check each of my knifes for the balance point.  This one is similar to my Sykes.  Even though a reproduction, it is cool to hold a very historic knife and also do some training.

A gorgeous iconic work of art that's sharp as a razor. Built to kill.

Quality craftsmanship with nice weight and balance in my hand.  Very sharp.  Scabbard with belt loop and leg tie is a nice addition.

Cool knife
Well made and solid.  Great copy of the original.  1095 steel is always good. Factory edge won't slice paper though.

Thank you for your review.  While we do our best to provide a sharp edge, there is always room for improvement on a knife.   Nothing takes the place of an individual effort to get the sharpest edge on a knife or sword.  Thanks again.

Sharp knife - both meanings.  Wish I had this when I went through Ranger School back in the winter of 1966-67.

blade breaks easily due to tempering. Good steel.
