    Hi everyone...I am a huge fan of the OSS knives from the different wars and I am a big fan of the V-42 Daggers...I wanted to post some pics of the various cool stuff I have held and gotten to experiment with here. Some pics of things I havent help but I like so theyll be here too. If any of you have a fav WWI/WWII knives or bayonets, OSS/CIA items, SAS, SBS, or any other types of Blades from any military conflict that you love, own, or have actually carried/used...Please feel free to post pics and tell us about it. :)

    I would love to know more.

    I find that the Daggers of WWII are very similar...Marine Raider, Sykes/Fairbairn, British Commando, V-42, Black Devils, Camp-X Dagger,
    etc. (I'm sure there's more I am forgetting.)

    I'll start....
    X_dagger_1-1.jpg
    NZCampX4-1.jpg
    Heres a 'Camp-X Dagger'...if any of you know about Camp-X then you know what this is...

Damn quiet and damn deadly weapons. :evil:

    Cool thread, but while the Gerber is a personal fave I don't think is belongs in the poll with "WWI/WWII" knives.

    I'd go with the other category because I've always been impressed with the variety and inventiveness of the various "Theater Knives" produced by individual soldiers/sailors who had access to materials and equipment to work them.

    Niiiice. Good post bro. And youre right. I didnt really think about that gerber until you posted that. They were first used in the 'Nam era IIRC.

    Yes/no??

    I like the Fairbairn-Sykes the best. Does anybody know if anybody is still making good quality ones of these?

    It didn't see production during the war, but my favorite design from the period is the Applegate-Fairbairn. It isn't as mondo-beyondo kewl as many of the other designs, but I admire its clean lines and clarity of purpose.

    All cool stuff I would love to collect... except perhaps the "prison wallet" -although the one containing the equivalent of a small tool shop would probably be handy for prisonbreaks.

    I don't believe that the Gerber Mk II was made in those times.

    Ya you all are right...that knife wasnt made in that era.

    Gotta love the KaBar bros....gotta love it!! :D

    hso is gonna take the Gerber out of the poll. Maybe we should replace it with the Applegate/Fairbairn?? :)

    I feel you on the prision kit...ouch, but(lol) it would come in handy if needed.

    I went back and looked at what he said just to be sure and the original post just says 'WWI/WWII knives or bayonets, OSS/CIA items, SAS, SBS, or other types of Blades from any military conflict'. There's nothing in there about limiting the list to just daggers from that particular era.


    I'm just having some fun and joking that the Ka-Bar WWII knife is a pretty big knife to miss.

    Pun intended.

    Look at the design of this 1960s era CIA poison needle of the same general type as issued to F. Gary Powers on his U-2 flight .The grooves filled with saxitoxin.These are very tiny weapons...above pic is deceiving on true size.

    The larger "drillbit" version is one of a few simple protoypes,I made up for testing based on a simple gimlet .It uses the same groove design as the above CIA version . Their is a "secret" to make a toxin stay in the grooves....:evil:


    Some place I have some excellent pics of the "real" mini version as issued to F.G.P and also the larger version ,even to see a pic of is ULTRA rare.I will look my files over. Its a super weird CIA weapon.

    Damn cool...I was hoping youd post in this thread AlWill. Youre so knowledgeable about this stuff and I always welcome more knowledge. GREAT work on those tools Al....you did an awesome redition of the originals. And I love that Black Dagger to the far left in your last pic...I know what that is. No mistaking that one. ;) Keep it up Al...you got alot to share.

    'Browning' is right...I did mention knives as well as daggers, But 'hso' was right too...the poll was limited to daggers and the dagger style of knife. So you were both correct. :)

    LOL...youre right also Browning...I did miss the KaBar...very very big prolific knife to miss. Doh. My bad... :)

    ALRIGHT GUYZ....KEEP THE PICS AND STUFF COMIN!!

    Thanks Bro...While I may know a small bit about odd items my mfg skills are way low.:uhoh: That where you come in.:D



    Heres a prototype I did for a guy years ago, based on the bond garrotte watch.It really worked well....I was surprised.

    Dial is false..just paper but it works to create the illusion. Wire is high strength stainless tiger tail with a nylon coating .Inside reel is all custom.

    Here are a couple of prototype watchband wrist sheaths...done for another person for use with hideaway knives and another custom dagger I made. Based on soe wrist dagger type sheaths.

    and to wrap it up a "credit card "gun...Darn thing really works .

    Darn right thats where I come in. :) Although I would argue that youre selling yourself short AlWill....I think youve got amazing potential...and youve done GREAT work so far.

    I would LOVE to do a small run of 15 watches like that...or with a lil blade in them. You say manufacturing is where I come in,design of a watch and the mech. behind making it work RIGHT is where YOU come in bro. :D

    Lets do it.

    Wow...now THATS RARE!! I'll tell ya, them CIA/OSS techs are some savvy,B.A. dudes. Can you imagine being inside their shop?? All the cool stuff you'd find. Hubba hubba.

    Maybe you can answer me something Alwilliam...I have seen these little hooked spikes in the OSS/CIA kits and such for awhjile now,but other than whats obvious,what else are they for?? I get that they can be used for stabbing or hooking flesh,or even using that hook to brace for stabbing like a pushdagger,but is there something I am missing?? A specific purpose?
    SOEHookStickerCordHandleR-1.jpg

    That pin/pen is Truly a cool find ALwill. Thanx for posting that!! :D (I sent you a PM...have a look.)

    Heres a few more goodies...
