The Fairbairn Cobra

During the 1950's, Fairbairn designed a new and unique knife, known as the Cobra. This is of a similar size to the wartime smatchet, but handles more like a Fairbairn-Sykes fighting knife, making it an effective close combat weapon. This piece is reproduced from the only known photograph of two original examples and is exacting in all details, proportion and form.

The leather scabbard allows the knife to be worn according to Fairbairn's recommendations, canted at an angle on the left hip with the grip in a convenient position to draw, and is suitable for carrying on any belt up to 2" wide.
