Inspired by actual military use and history, our top-quality V-42 stiletto dagger is a replica of the original, designed in part by Lt. Colonel Robert T. Frederick, commander of The Devil's Brigade. This double-edged replica features a steel spear point stiletto blade met by a generous guard to protect your hand and keep it from slipping to the blade. Just like the original, the handle is crafted of stacked leather for a combat-quality grip. The spiked pommel design will also inflict some serious damage. It's an authentic size, too, at 12-5/8" in overall length with a 7-1/4" blade. Includes a custom leather sheath.

Disappointed Reviewed by Douglas D Rice on Nov 15, 2015   2 out of 5

From reading other reviews, this V42 Military Stiletto is definitely a "your mileage may vary" item, It's obvious the manufacturing quality control is lacking or nonexistent. You either get a really good one or a sloppy one. The one I received falls in the latter group. The handle was as loose as a goose! The end cap was tightened down as far as it would go, but the handle and guard were still so loose they rattled. I was able to tighten it up by adding a couple leather "spacers" to the end of the stacked handle. The spiked end cap is some kind of softer cast metal so be careful when threading it off and on or the steel threads on the tang will strip the shallow threads in the end cap. The good aspects of the knife are that it has a VERY sharp fine point, and the blade and tang shaft are one piece. Unlike the M1918 which has the blade spot welded to the tang shaft. The knife does have decent accurate details including thumb ridges on the hilt of the blade like the original. The leather handle and sheath are decent - okay quality. Bottom line, NOT worth the $20 price tag, and I don't expect much for $20! lol I missed the promotional BOGO and paid regular price. Knife will be okay for display or collecting with limited handling, but not something to expect to use even occassionally...I wouldn't trust my life with it! It's a cool knife with historical significance, so I hope the quality improves.

Not what I expected Reviewed by Richard L. Benjamin on Nov 04, 2015   2 out of 5

I order the BOGO (buy one, get one free) package and examined the daggers when they arrived. One was OK, the second one fell apart in my hands. Both were returned for a refund.

Good Stiletto Reviewed by Jay on Dec 03, 2014   5 out of 5

Good knife for the price. Better than average leather sheath. Leather handle with steel brace insert. Full rat tail tang which is what this style knife is supposed to have. No welds, one piece steel. Tip is needle sharp. Blade is not, but it isn't a slicing knife. Easily sharpened. So it's a good knife.Really good. Especially for $19 or less. Stolen from the review from GAF - "An OK copy" below": If handle is lose, unscrew the skull cracker, tighten the nut, screw skull cracker back on." Because that's the fix. Five minutes if you are slow and have to find your crescent wrench. Well worth the minor trouble if the nut is loose.

An OK copy Reviewed by GAF on Sep 18, 2014   4 out of 5

It's an OK copy of this military dagger. The case is totally wrong for this but remember it is an inexpensive COPY. Real V-42s are rare and cost $1000s. If handle is lose, unscrew the skull cracker, tighten the nut, screw skull cracker back on. It does fit into a M8 or a M8A1 military scabbard but not the way they did it. Sharp with a fine tip.

Slightly disappointed Reviewed by Jacob on Aug 26, 2014   4 out of 5

Got two for the price of one very sturdy knives except for the hilt on one is loose otherwise great knives feels good in the palm and the temple cracker is vicious as any I've encountered

Excellent value - Two for the price of one! Reviewed by Tom Lawson on Aug 20, 2014   5 out of 5

Am very impressed with the quality of both knives received in a Two for the Price of One deal! Fast delivery and solid customer service, too!

looks can decieve Reviewed by mike on Aug 01, 2014   3 out of 5

just like most of the people before me, ill say that this knife isn't all that great. it looks badass, the blade is decent. but that's where it stops. although, unlike everyone else here, I made mine AWESOME. I removed that "leather" handle material. that was a serious design flaw. I tightened the hilt, and what I did was made a killer paracord handle for it. I took some high quality 550 paracord, and tied a brown and camo 5x3 turks head knot. I tripled it, so the turk head was brown, camo, then brown. and with the spike pommel this thing NOW looks like a serious contender. though I put a lot of work into this handle,(and I'm likely biased) it now is definitely worth much more than the 13 dollar sale price. in fact, if I was to sell this I would suggest 25 bux. if you will look at all the comments, they all complained primarily about the handle, and not much else. in all reality this is now an awesome shank. unfortunately I don't know of anyway to mass market a turk head handle for this knife. I bet this thing would sell off the shelf. so unless you have paracord skills or otherwise know a way to re grip knife handles, you might want to heed all the other reviews. straight out of the box this knife is a solid 2 stars, after I got done with the handle, it is easy 5+ stars. I challenge anyone to check out what I've done and disagree. to bad I cant publish pics.
