OK, you guys win. The pressure had become unbearable, so I just had to order something from The Knife Guy. Kizer Splinter Black.  Can't wait for it to arrive...  :toothy10:

What is the similarity between Olsons and having sex in a boat?  Both are faarking close to water.

I have no idea Louis. But please resist the temptation to clean it. It's authentic as is. And beautiful. 👌

@Vis Arend - any markings on it.
Fairbairn-Sykers perhaps?

Thanks guys, not mine yet.   :biggrin:

Yes @mox, also thought so but then again what about the WW2 commando dagger?  or is the two basically the same?

It's not with me to look for any markings, and the woman who has it has no clue.   :eek7:

When you get it send us pics of the markings - it still has what looks like good ones from what I can tell from that photo

Is it the Fairbairn Spyker?  The handle looks completely different.
In any case, it is on ts way to me.   :biggrin:

There were many variations I think and many were customised. Whatever it is I am intrigued.

Myself, received this answer from a knife forum. 

"Southern & Richardson WW2 British Commando dagger." 

So the search continue.   :biggrin:
