Additional information

This dagger is replica of the V-42 Combat Knife which was issued to specialized US Forces in WWII. The blackened 1566 high carbon steel blade is double-blued to blacken it to a hue ideal for nighttime operations. The steel guard and skull-cracker pommel are likewise blackened and the grip is wrapped with tightly wound leather cordage. The back of the guard is given a layer of leather to cushion the knuckles when the dagger is thrust into its target.

The knife is paired with a sheath of leather with stitched and riveted construction and a buttoned grip retention strap. The sheath can be either slung from a belt or affixed directly onto one.
