Colonel Aaron Bank, born November 23, 1902 , was an officer of the United States Army, and the founder of the U.S. Army Special Forces, commonly called "Green Berets". This military dagger has been produced in his honor.He is also famous for his exploits as an OSS officer during World War II, parachuting into France to coordinate and activate the French Resistance and organizing an operation intended to capture Adolf Hitler. He died on April 1, 2004 in Dana Point, California at the age of 101.The V-42 Stiletto was used extensively in many Special Forces branches as the primary fighting knife. This historically accurate V-42 stiletto replica features a stacked leather handle like the original, as to be easily handled in cold weather.Each dagger offers a sharp, double-edged stiletto blade that pierces through even tough materials with ease. Thumb notches are cast into the handle above the guard to keep the knife from slipping when wet or wearing gloves.Each piece is laser-serialized and etched with the S.O.A. shield. It also includes an exact replica of the extended sheath, which hung below the soldier"s winter parkas. 6 7/8 in. blade, 12 5/8 in, overall.

I ordered 2 and they were very nice. Then I ordered 2 more for gifts. The second 2 were plain and unsigned and no markings on the blade. They were in the col. Bank box, but were the standard V-42.
Really amazing blade and sheath for the price. The etching looks good and the blade and pommel are pretty sharp. The sheath is incredibly well built and detailed..it's unfortunate all that detail went into a 'bonded' leather product but I guess it would be cost prohibitive to use solid leather. I imagine with a good oiling the sheath should last. Overall it's an incredible value at a discounted price.
This a very good reproduction. Feels deadly in the hand. smmoth attractive leather handle. A nice addition to a collection and a fine tribute to colonal Aaron Bank. A definite bargain at this price. I really like mine.
tHIS IS A VERY NICE REPLICA DAGGER TO ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION. IT SEEMS TO BE A NEAR PERFECT REPLICA OF THE REAL THING & THE PRICE IS RIGHT. THE SHEATH IS ALSO WELL MADE. THE ENTIRE DEAL IS WELL WORTH THE MONEY.
I had been looking at this V42 copy since it came out, but hesitated ordering because I am not a big fan of the commerative text on the blade, but...when it went on sale, I decided I had waited long enough and could live with the text. I am glad I ordered, because I feel it is an unbeatable copy for the price. Let's face it -- very few people would order this knife for actual use. Most people will order it as a collectable and it certainly fills the bill for that purpose. (...not that it couldn't be put to use if need be!)
This dagger is one of the finest copys of the real thing .I was very pleased with the workmanship and evident quality of the entire weapon. The sheath was quality , not hokie looking like some I've seen.I'm well pleased+money well spent.Think I'll buy another while supplies last.You need to add a couple of stars to your Rating scale 5 Isn't enough for this item. Thanks a million James D.
