Original UK Knife
This is an original production knife from Sheffield and I had a leg sheath customized by Mr. Robert Jones at Review by Mike (Posted on 6/8/2017)
Gets the job done
I have owned a British Commando knife for a long time and its a great knife. It is so sharp and reliable that one time I drove the tip through a dime. It is a true defensive/offensive knife, not a camping or hunting knife. A long time ago it saved my life and it has a place of honor with me ever since. Its a true fighting knife and not a toy. Enough said. Review by Mike B (Posted on 12/30/2016)
Excellent Knife
I have had my eyes open for a knife like this, ever since I saw one from WW2 that my father had in his collection.

This knife doesn't seem to the same materials as the original MK1 or MK2, but this is still a great knife.

This is a great piece for anyone who loves knives and if it was ever pressed into service, I have no doubts that it would do exactly what it was designed to do. Great Price and pretty solid materials!

Good value.
I got Nowill manufactured knives. These are actual MOD issue right now to Royal Marines. When compared to the mkI an mkII knives, these mkIII knives are very cheaply built but are made to present day MOD specs. They are still a fine weapon, just not overbuilt (?) like the original marks. These knives can, and should, be disassembled after a mission to be cleaned and lubed as there are many places for water to settle. These are carbon steel and will rust. These were never meant to be field craft knives and would not stand up to field use. They are meant for one function only and are superbly suited to that purpose. Thanks for making them available.
