There are many fake versions

There are many fake versions of this knife out there, just look at BudK, they are cruddy, I bought one for a friend and was embarrassed. This Paul Chen is the closest I have ever seen to a real WWII trench knife and British Cammando blade. It is not made from cruddy stainless steel and then blackened. This Knife has a true carbon steel tempered blade, with the finger grooves. The stacked leather handle is excellent, and the butt is also a dangerously pointed end. The sheath is also good thick, supple leather with reinforcing rivets around, not vinyl or paper thin junk leather that crack when bent. With as little sharpening this baby is wicked, and historically correct. Jeff D.
I love this knife

This is my first order, but it will not be my last. Service was great and shipping was reasonable. This V-42 seems to be very well made and was everything I expected it to be. A very nice reproduction of an important part of history that would easily fill its original intended role.
