UC2784: SOA V42 Marine Dagger Banks Edition with Sheath
United Cutlery

Colonel Aaron Bank, born November 23, 1902 , was an officer of the United States Army, and the founder of the US Army Special Forces, commonly called "Green Berets". He is also famous for his exploits as an OSS officer during World War II, parachuting into France to coordinate and activate the French Resistance and organizing an operation intended to capture Adolf Hitler. Col. Bank is commonly known throughout the armed forces as "The Father Of The Green Berets." He died on April 1, 2004 in Dana Point, California at the age of 101.

The V-42 Stiletto was used extensively in many Special Forces branches as the primary fighting knife. This historically accurate V-42 stiletto replica features a stacked leather handle like the original, as to be easily handled in cold weather. Each dagger offers a razor-sharp, double-edged stiletto blade that pierces through even tough materials with ease. Thumb notches are cast into the handle above the guard to keep the knife from slipping when wet or wearing gloves. Each piece is laser-serialized and etched with the S.O.A. shield. It also includes an exact replica of the extended sheath which hung below the soldier's winter parkas. Blade length: 7-1/4". Overall length: 12-1/4". Handcrafted in China.
Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.

Poor Copy
The item is a poor replica of the Case model I carried with MACVSOG in Vietnam. I still have the Case, and was looking for a copy, this isn't it!

United Cutlery V-42 Stiletto
This piece will be kept as a collection item ,but is ready to be put to work if needed! Both edges are sharp and it's weighted well for the hand. The grip is leather and will need maintaining just like USMC fighting knives. The embossing on the blade precludes it from being much of a user piece but it does look nice! The sheath is rather poorly made, more of an afterthought but after all it a knife for show rather than carry.
