The Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife is a famous combat knife that was developed by two British soldiers, William Ewart Fairbairn and Eric Anthony Sykes, during World War II.
The design of the Fairbairn-Sykes knife was based on their combined experience with various fighting styles, including Chinese martial arts and the trench warfare of World War I. The knife features a slender, double-edged blade that is optimized for thrusting and stabbing attacks, as well as a symmetrical handle that allows for a secure grip and easy maneuverability.
The Fairbairn-Sykes knife quickly became popular among British commandos and other special forces units during World War II. It was also used by other Allied forces, such as the US Marine Corps and the Soviet Red Army. After the war, the knife remained in use by various military and law enforcement agencies around the world, and it has since become a symbol of elite combat training and expertise.
