The Fox Fairbairn Sykes fighting knife is a double-edged knife with a cast aluminum grip developed by William Ewart Fairbairn and Eric Anthony Sykes before World War II. It was made famous during the War when issued to British Commandos, including the SAS. Although the Fairbairn-Sykes knife is now of interest mainly to collectors, because of its sleek lines and its commando associations it still remains in production today.
This version of the knife was designed exclusively for surprise attack and fighting by Hill Knives. The slender PVD coated N690Co blade can easily penetrate a ribcage and the aluminum vase handle grants precise grip. The double-edged blade is integral to its design.
The balance of the Fairbairn-Sykes design is crucial and it takes careful forging and production to ensure that the knife balances exactly as designed. The hilt should fit easily in the hand and the blade should not be so heavy that it tends to drag the hilt from the fingers in a loose grip. The knives come in a leather sheath so it can be easily stowed in a boot or attached to a belt.
