Good Craftsmanship for a Reproduction
There are tons of Fairbairn Sykes reproductions out there, and many of them are extremely poor quality. The Scorpion F-S is a really good reproduction. The edge of the knife is not meant to be sharp, this is not a cutting instrument. Of course, there are people out there that even find the Scorpion reproduction unacceptable; and that's understandable to a degree. However, unless you have an F-S custom made, or buy an original, I'd say this is about as accurate as you are going to get on the original specs. As for my F-S, it was shipped in a nice box, and the quality and construction of the materials are very acceptable; as well as the sheath. They did a pretty good job on the specs. If you're going to buy a mass produced F-S, I'd recommend one of these. Hopefully their quality control hasn't diminished since.
