    Hill Knives

    The Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife is a famous combat knife designed during World War II by William E. Fairbairn and Eric A. Sykes, two British officers experienced in close combat. This knife became an icon of warfare during the war and is known for its effectiveness and distinctive design. The Fairbairn-Sykes has a long, slender blade with a laurel leaf profile that ends in a sharp needle point. The handle is designed to be tight and allow for a firm grip, with grooves for increased precision and control during use. This knife was widely used by British commandos during World War II and has continued to be used after the war by various military units and special forces worldwide. Its shape and functionality still make it a popular choice for knife enthusiasts and collectors today.
