Beautiful Lines of a fine dagger, Not as fine as a Colt should be
The Colt V-42 is everything that a dagger should be, in appearance. The lines of the knife make it the combat knife that inspired the US Army Special forces patch design. The drawback of this knife is the construction. The quality is not what I would expect of a company with the experience of Colt. The cross guard on the hilt came to me loose. The leather on the handle was "crisp" as if too varnished. I feel that Colt should step up their quality control a bit to make this not just a nice looking knife but a great knife. The history of the knife and the history of the company deserve this.
