Additional information

This recreation of the British Rodgers-Sheffield Type D Survival Knife has a blued blade of high carbon steel; it is faithfully reproduced with with manufacturer and armory markings. The grip is two wooden grip halves stoutly riveted to the thick blade tang. The knife comes with a sheath of stitched and riveted leather with an integrated belt loop and grip retaining strap.

The British Type D Survival Knife was issued to all branches of the military after its introduction in the 1950s. Based on the codes stamped on the blade it can be discerned what branch of service the knife was issued to. The knife shown here is a replica of a Type D that was issued to the Royal Air Force as designated by a stamped serial code beginning with 27C.

This robust survival knife has a thick-spined blade well able to chop and hack through durable targets. Its contoured grip securely fits the palm of most hands quite well.
