Purchase a Replica of the famous V-42
Did you or your Force relative have your V-42 stolen while wounded or on transport coming home. Maybe it got misplaced or sold later. Now you can have a very well made replica of the greatest fighting knife of all time. Designed by Robert T. Frederick for the First Special Service Force it features a skull-cracker butt cap, double-edged blued blade and a stacked leather washer grip.
Great gift for a vet or a "Force" family member. Could be used for Living History also.
There are MANY different replicas of the most coveted war knife in the world. Please see below for the many options you have to get your very own V-42 replica.
I pay for the cost of this website out of my OWN TIME & MONEY. I do not get paid or reimbursed for it! So if you would like to support the site look at purchasing a Replica V-42 or T-shirt that I made. Thanks for your support!

the Anzio beachhead and both versions of the
