Fairbairn-Sykes Style Dagger


Recommended Posts

Started this one last year sometime and spent the past couple of days making a sheath finishing up the details. Blade is about 7" light and fast clay hardened 1095. Blackened steel sculpted guard and pommel nut with sculpted brass washers and hammer textured ferrule. Turned bubinga handle. Scabbard is laminated millboard covered in pigskin with a frogged belt loop and copper chape and locket:

Cool!  I really like that interpretation. 

I'm the one odd duck who thinks the Fairbairn-Sykes is a bit homely looking (with all due respect to the significance of the design), but you have made one that I really like.

I love the look of this! I'm currently working on one as a departure gift for a friend. Ill be doing a similar look with the handle using black walnut.

It's not that I would trade my lot

Or any other man's,

Nor that I will be ashamed

Of my work torn hands-


For I have chosen the path I tread

Knowing it would be steep,

And I will take the joys thereof

And the consequences reap.

good ideas. The wood handle with the turning looks a little like my FS version 3 that is on the table next to me as I type (that and a kukri).

you understand.

I said then and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it; while there is a criminal element, I am of it; while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.” E. V. Debs
