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.

V-42 Col Banks Stiletto
Feels good in hand, is easily maneuverable and the design is for real business and not for goofing off. This dagger/stiletto is time proven and continues as a weapon of choice for Special Operators.

Cons: None
Every thing as promised.
I purchased the V-42 Col. Aaron Bank Limited Edition Stiletto for my small US Army knifew collection. The V-42 came and was exactley as advertised including the sheath. The V-42 feels great in my hand and was very sharp. The engraving was crisp and easy to read. Since it's part of a collection, I'm not going to use it as a throwing knive, although it does balance well. Overall this knife is a ten.
