Default Seldom Seen Canadian Para Stiletto

Hi Guys,

This is such a seldom seen version of the F-S knife I thought it worth sharing here as most collectors will never see an example.

This is an all black version of the USMC Raider Stiletto made especially for the Canadian 1st Parachute Battalion. I have had only a handful of examples come through my hands over the years and this one appears in unused condition and with correct sheath, likely the finest known example. I was able to find this specifically for a client but as it's still in my possession, thought it would be nice to share it here for interest.

Cheerio,

Roy

Thanks Steve,

These are a true rarity and I don't expect to ever see a finer example. Many collectors I know have never even heard of this knife it's so rare, so thought it would be nice to share.

Cheerio,

Roy

Thanks Chaps,

This has been in a longtime friends collection and I understand it originally (many years ago) came direct from the family, clearly never used.

Fortunately a client of mine was looking for a high condition one of these, so I was able to find it a new home.

At least I have it to enjoy for the moment.

Cheerio,

Roy
