Type D Survival Knife
We are pleased to announce the launch of our latest product, the Type D Survival Knife.
This was originally manufactured by Wilkinson Sword Co for British special forces and has been regarded as one of the most practical survival and field knives designed. Our piece replicates the original dimensions and form exactly. The hand-ground full convex grind blade is 75Cr1, hardened and tempered for optimum cutting ability and durability.
We offer this knife with a choice of scabbards. The original Wilkinson design leather version is available as well as an MTP molle compatible version for attachment to UK or US military webbing or equipment.
Our Type D grip scales are crafted in stained white oak as standard though may be made in any other wood or grip material of your choice. Custom blade etching is also offered as an optional extra.
Each knife features the Macdonald Armouries blade etch and is individually stamped with manufacture number and date of creation. The Type D was re-made by other companies as the MOD survival knife for years but was a much cruder version that was nowhere near the quality of the original design.
This is the first time this legendary knife has become available since Wilkinson Sword Co last made them and marks a true survival revival!
