The V-42 was designed in part by the Commanding Officer of the First Special Service Force, The Devil's Bridgade; Lt. Colonel Robert T. Frederick. The knife was designed and constructed with the sole purpose of battle in mind. This knife was the trademark weapon of the Devil's Brigade, and its members were trained extensively in the use of the V-42. Our historically accurate 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.

Great Reproduction

This Dagger is a great reproduction of the original Case Dagger from WWII Not quite "Razor Sharp" but it is sharp(ish), and VERY "Pointy" Got it with the "BOGO" so it is well worth the $12.50

Great Reproduction

BOGO great purchase

Well I had wanted to get one of these for a while. Then one day they were offered as a buy one get one free. I wish I had ordered two and that would have got me four. These are beautiful, great leather handles, black finish, and sharp. Every time I get back here I check them and see if they are BOGO again. Don't miss out on this great reproduction.

BOGO great purchase

Very Nice

Well designed. Really liked it and was worth the money, but it's a shame it wasn't made of gun steel or high carbon steel. I still like it though.

Very Nice

Disappointed

From reading other reviews, this V42 Military Stiletto is definitely a "your mileage may vary" item, It's obvious the manufacturing quality control is lacking or nonexistent. You either get a really good one or a sloppy one. The one I received falls in the latter group. The handle was as loose as a goose! The end cap was tightened down as far as it would go, but the handle and guard were still so loose they rattled. I was able to tighten it up by adding a couple leather "spacers" to the end of the stacked handle. The spiked end cap is some kind of softer cast metal so be careful when threading it off and on or the steel threads on the tang will strip the shallow threads in the end cap. The good aspects of the knife are that it has a VERY sharp fine point, and the blade and tang shaft are one piece. Unlike the M1918 which has the blade spot welded to the tang shaft. The knife does have decent accurate details including thumb ridges on the hilt of the blade like the original. The leather handle and sheath are decent - okay quality. Bottom line, NOT worth the $20 price tag, and I don't expect much for $20! lol I missed the promotional BOGO and paid regular price. Knife will be okay for display or collecting with limited handling, but not something to expect to use even occassionally...I wouldn't trust my life with it! It's a cool knife with historical significance, so I hope the quality improves.

Disappointed

Not what I expected

I order the BOGO (buy one, get one free) package and examined the daggers when they arrived. One was OK, the second one fell apart in my hands. Both were returned for a refund.

Not what I expected

Good Stiletto

Good knife for the price. Better than average leather sheath. Leather handle with steel brace insert. Full rat tail tang which is what this style knife is supposed to have. No welds, one piece steel. Tip is needle sharp. Blade is not, but it isn't a slicing knife. Easily sharpened. So it's a good knife.Really good. Especially for $19 or less. Stolen from the review from GAF - "An OK copy" below": If handle is lose, unscrew the skull cracker, tighten the nut, screw skull cracker back on." Because that's the fix. Five minutes if you are slow and have to find your crescent wrench. Well worth the minor trouble if the nut is loose.

Good Stiletto

An OK copy

It's an OK copy of this military dagger. The case is totally wrong for this but remember it is an inexpensive COPY. Real V-42s are rare and cost $1000s. If handle is lose, unscrew the skull cracker, tighten the nut, screw skull cracker back on. It does fit into a M8 or a M8A1 military scabbard but not the way they did it. Sharp with a fine tip.

An OK copy

looks can decieve

just like most of the people before me, ill say that this knife isn't all that great. it looks badass, the blade is decent. but that's where it stops. although, unlike everyone else here, I made mine AWESOME. I removed that "leather" handle material. that was a serious design flaw. I tightened the hilt, and what I did was made a killer paracord handle for it. I took some high quality 550 paracord, and tied a brown and camo 5x3 turks head knot. I tripled it, so the turk head was brown, camo, then brown. and with the spike pommel this thing NOW looks like a serious contender. though I put a lot of work into this handle,(and I'm likely biased) it now is definitely worth much more than the 13 dollar sale price. in fact, if I was to sell this I would suggest 25 bux. if you will look at all the comments, they all complained primarily about the handle, and not much else. in all reality this is now an awesome shank. unfortunately I don't know of anyway to mass market a turk head handle for this knife. I bet this thing would sell off the shelf. so unless you have paracord skills or otherwise know a way to re grip knife handles, you might want to heed all the other reviews. straight out of the box this knife is a solid 2 stars, after I got done with the handle, it is easy 5+ stars. I challenge anyone to check out what I've done and disagree. to bad I cant publish pics.

Meh....

Its a 13 dollar blade, so expecting something that is SOG or Ontario quality is expecting way too much. But it is a sharp blade, good for a "get home bag" in the trunk, or even something to stash about the house somewhere. It feels ok in the hand, and would probably not hold up well to extended use. I do feel it is worth 13 bucks though.

Meh....

Not impressed

I ordered 5 items from Budk and this was the only let down. I'm a fan of the V-42 and this appeared to be a d**n good deal on a decent enough knife. Look - I realize I'm buying a knife for less than $13 so I'm not expecting miracles but what I got hardly resembles the pic. My main problems are these - the blade does not sit flush on the quillion, the handle - whatever it is made of - spins and is not secure ie. if I held the handle firmly I could twist the blade (carefully, it is sharp however ha ha), and finally - the skullcrusher doesn't sit flush on the handle. In the space between the handle and skullcrusher there is some glue. Bummer.

Not impressed

Cheaper than it looks

It's made out of cheap materials. It feels slightly flimsy in the hand as well. My handle isn't stacked leather either. It's this type of hardened resin or bakelite and right under the finger guard was the only piece of real leather but the leather seemed liked it was stamped out and it was glued all along the underside of the finger guard. I cut it all off and it doesn't look terribly bad. Decent hiking use and abuse knife. I don't expect it to last

Cheaper than it looks
