Commando knives were my thing, had so many cheap ones. . .
I always wanted a real one. . But I never bought a collectible sheath knife, new.

I've been gifted a few odds and ends.

I believe it is an Egyptian commando dagger ,probably from the 60s or 70s but I cant find much about it .
It came complete with bloody sheath and is quite wide for a combat knife ,more like a spear tip .than a dagger .

Heres some better images of it .

That would make a good spear point, Ian. Wonder if the sheath is crocodile skin, being from Egypt. Or maybe even hippo?

Not sure what the sheath is crafted from Luke ,definitely not a croc ,more likely camel or goat skin.
Dont think they are brave enough to skin hippos ,crazy beasts . :)

Its an unusual combat knife for sure ,not seen many come up for aale but its really well made and carbon bladed ,could be made even earlier than I said .

Thanks for looking .

I also have had no success on finding anything about the dagger apart from when I bought it .Then it was listed as an Egyptian commando dagger by the German seller.
