Blackjack Applegate Fairbairn Commando Fighting Knife &
For your consideration is this vintage BLACKJACK APPLE-FAIRBAIRN FIGHTING KNIFE. Selling as used as I’m not the original owner nor is there any box or papers.
In 1943 during WWII Colonel Rex Applegate and W.E. Fairbairn, OSS instructors designed the ultimate fighting knife for the Allied troops.This style of fighting knife has survived through decades and wars.
It doesn’t appear the knife has ever been used. In great condition. Edges look original not re-sharpened
Brass cross guard and grooved Lexan handle. There is a small crack at top of handle you can see in photo. I don’t believe it will get worse but a little super glue filling the crack would take care of it. Serial # 07245 stamped on one side of the brass guard.
Bead blasted razor sharp double edge non-reflective blade. Applegate & Fairbain’s name etched on one side of blade. Blackjack logo & Applegate Fairbain stamped on front tang. Made in U.S.A. stamped on other tang.
