This is an extremely rare and desirable WWII V42 Stiletto produced by the CASE Cutlery Company in 1943. These Stilettos were patterned after the Fairbairn-Sikes Commando knives and were issued to The First Special Services, commonly called "The Devils Brigade". This unit was a composite unit made up of both Canadian and US Army forces trained in Command Warfare. They were the true forerunners of the current Special Forces or Green Berets. There were approximately 3,600 of these knives produced and they are 12 1/2 inches overall with a slender 7 5/16 inch double sided stabbing blade, thumb print / CASE marked on the ricasso below the cross guard with the serrated one piece leather handle with a steel pointed "Skull Crusher" end cap.
Please wait until the INVOICE is sent to you. SHIPPING COSTS will be determined after I know where I am sending the item.

I charge EXACT SHIPPING COSTS AND NO MORE. If Paypal is being used then anything over $100 USD in value has to be trackable. Yes this gets expensive but I don’t set the postage costs. You can also use Visa or Mastercard through the Commandpost store (250 – 383-4421) to pay postage and have it non trackable then usually the costs are significantly lower. For example a $250 medal to Britain thru Paypal trackable would be about $50 USD. If by Visa and not trackable it would be about $7 USD.
Please use common sense. Obviously a large heavy or more valuable item is going to cost more to send so please take that into consideration when offerding. If you have a question please ask before offerding.
Shipping thru Paypal (trackable) items over $100 USD to Europe will be approx. $45 - $50 USD. Large and heavy items are more.
Shipping without tracking will be $6 - $8 USD unless larger and heavy then more.
Shipping to US & Canada if trackable and over $100 USD value then approx. $12 - $25 USD. It is more if items are heavier.
